In the Brooder
- Jan 28, 2010
Hello - my chicken got frostbite this winter. Her comb and feet turned black. I've had her seperated from the rest of our chickens for about a month now. She has gained weight and looks good except for her feet and comb. Today when I went to check on her, one foot had fallen off. The other one is getting ready to come off as well. Her comb is still on though. She isn't laying. She can't really walk, and she has to use her wings to balance her when she is standing or trying to walk. Should we put this chicken out of her misery or do you think she can be fine without feet down in our chicken yard and eventually start to lay again? I feel like - if I put her back down in the yard, the other chickens will try and kill her - just as they did when she first got frostbite. Thoughts? Thank you in advance for your feedback!
