We've never really had frostbite probs before. I thought for sure the Blue Andalusians woud be the breed to worry about with their insane floppy combs - but no, its Mortimer, my daughter's most beloved, who is a steady solid BA who is calm and friendly and lays like a champ. . She has a frostbitten comb and frostbite around the eyes! It's so sad to see. And if there's any blood, everybody gets interested and then as you know all hell can break loose. There are 21 other girls in her dorm. Twice we've had to bring her in for the night to heal her up with a bit of blu-kote, then we send her back out all greased up. We've greased her exposed flesh with A & D - that's diaper ointment which we use aroudn here for all kinds of things, and esp for chickens. It is about 80% petroleum jelly, 18% I think lanolin which is great, and the rest I guess is fillers - oh, and vitamins A & D. I think she must be getting her face wet when she drinks - she's a pretty lively girl. Anyway, today's the third time, ad it's going down to -10F this week. I plan to get some hay bales today and we have pretty deep litter at the moment. Looking for more suggestions/ideas/improvements/remedies?
