    Help my sebright rooster's comb has gone purple overnight! i think the place i had him wasnt quite warm enough! is it frozen comb?
    how do you deal with a frozen comb! Need help soon!
     
  2. The only thing i can think of is to thaw it out and put Vaseline and antibiotics on it. Hope it gets better!

    i believe the right term would be frostbitten comb. would you thaw that?
     
  5. sometimes people catch it while the comb is still frozen. when it's black or blue that means it's already thawed. hope it gets better!
