    Day 1
    My two rosters have frostbite on their wattles and combs. After much advise thanks to BYC I've begun treatment with neosporin ointment. I hope this will save my chickies from getting worse. Please feel free to comment if you have any more advise, meanwhile I'll continue this treatment and update their progress [​IMG]

    Day 2
    I'm applying neosporin to his comb and wattles every morning and when I put him up at night. So twice a day. This morning I like to think this treatment is helping. It looks to me like his wattles are beginning to look better. I don't really see a difference in his comb though. I will continue this daily. [​IMG]
