    Yes. Thanks. How do the toe tips look? Only one is visible in the photo.

    How old is this chicken?

    And could we please see a picture of the bottom of the foot?

    I see that’s it weeping some.
    How cold was the weather she was exposed to and for how long?

    Are you sure it’s frostbite?

    Ok sorry. We crossed paths as you were posting picture number 2.

    Are her feet wet or weeping?

    Looks bad, but survival is possible. Might get lucky and salvage toes.

    The left foot.
    The one with the two big swollen bumps.

    May I see the bottom of that foot.
    Since the skin is dark, are you seeing any scabbing or small wounds on that foot, please look closely for any sign of bumblefoot on the bottom of the foot pad or on the underside of those toes.

    @centrarchid ,
    Does frostbite bubble up like that where the skin is thin?
