I had to keep my WL cockerel in a wire cage last night because he is fighting with my RIR cockerel. I gave him a roost to sleep on so he could keep warm if needed. When I went out to check on them first thing this morning his wattles were frozen stiff. Mostly it was the lower 2/3 that were stiff. I brought him in the house and held him and watched his wattles steam while they thawed out. He slept in my arms. Anyway, I put some Neosporin on them because there was one part that was slightly cracked open and had oozed in the past I would say. Anyone want to tell me how applying petro jelly will help keep them from freezing? How much would I apply? At night? Do I rub it in? Thanks for the help.
