    I know she is not a good breed for cold weather but it is not just on the end of her toes but a few black spots on bottom of legs. Is this frost bite? Please help she is my favorite chicken and a sweety pie.

    My black Cuckoo has pinkish-tan legs and feet, and she started getting some black spots on them as a pullet (around 4 mos). You can see the black in the photo below. If her spots don't have other frost-bitey symptoms, I think it's natural for the breed. Hope this helps a little.

    My Cuckoo has black spots on her legs and feet also... I think it's just the breed characteristics.
