    I just put Vaseline on all 5 of my hen's combs and wattles this morning. Do I need to put some on everyday or one time that's all? I'm very confused with all of these different opinions from friends. Thank you

    I'm in Washington on Mt. Rainier where it is cold but I haven't put any on my Wyandottes. So far, so good!

    Do any of you have chickens that want to be outside in the snow? My Wyandottes do!
