We had some crazy weather earlier this week. (low -20; highs only reached -7 Add the wind chills & YIKES!) I'm new to the world of chickens, so it's been a big learning experience. I tried the Vaseline trick - especially on my cockerel & large-comb pullet. I'm not sure if it worked. Am I seeing early signs of frostbite, dry skin, or something else? If frostbite, how many days does it take to turn black? Is there anything else I can do for them? You can see this cream/white hen rolled around in the sand today. The Vaseline is making all the dirt stick to her, but I fear the tips may be damaged. Look closely at the pale tips. This black one's about 21 weeks old & the comb just started getting red a few weeks ago.
