    Hi, looking for some advice please. I have attached photos below of my hen. Her comb has become hardened and yellowish, with a yellow crust on the bottom of her wattles too. Is this frostbite?? About 5 days ago she did have bubbles in her eyes. I put some ophthalmic Terramycin in her eyes and they were 100% better the next day...no more bubbles. However, there is still something going on around her eyes, on the eyelids.

    Please ignore the blackish look. I had been putting Terramycin on her comb and wattles and so I think the black is just her having tried to rub it off in the dirt. Also had just bathed her comb and so her head is wet in the photos. At the base of her comb at the back you can see how there is a scabby area here.

    I have recently had some of my chickens down with fowl pox, but unless this is a different type of fowl pox, this is not the same.

    If it is frostbite will it turn black and will pieces of her drop off? Is there anything I can do in this case?

    Many thanks

    Thanks Eggcessive for the link to that thread. I have posted there now. I've got the photo thing worked out now, so below are the photos of her. I'm undecided if this could be wet fowl pox or not?
