I know this is not normal so could y'all please help me find out what's going on? Its got a lot of black spots and the edges looks like it's dying off.
Looks kinda like frostbite to me, too...poor guy!How cold is it where you are? That looks like frostbite to me. To help prevent more, eliminate drafts in the coop and put some Vaseline on the comb/wattles. As for treating the frostbite that he has right now, there isn't much you can do. The bad looking parts will probably scab up and fall off in a few weeks; the only thing you need to watch out for is infection.
