    My Silver Spangled Hamburg Pullet was left out of the coop last night and it got down to 15 degrees. Her comb is quite black. I'm on my way out to put some salve on it. as far as using him for the fair, I don't know. Hopefully, someone with more experience can help you. I'm sorry for your roo. Sue

    Its very likely the frost bitten parts will fall off. Vaseline help it heal faster.
