A couple weeks ago our temps reached 35 below and a my two roosters suffered a bit of frostbite. Just a smidgen of their waddles and the very tip of their combs turned black. They don't seem to mind, except for prevention, is there anything I should do. Thank you in advance.

they will lose the skin in the areas they have frostbite, it will turn white then red again. they will be fine, some people like to coat the combs and wattles with vaseline to keep the moisture off them when it gets cold. it is the moisture that freezes and destroys the tissue that causes the frostbite.
