    That looks like a very bad case of serious frost bite. The black appendages will most likely fall of or have to be amputated. If they are just toes, the chicken should be able to walk without them. If possible, consult a vet. Was it exceptionally cold recently? Regards, Leaf

    Either that's frostbite, or your chicken completely lost all circulation to his toes for a long time. Perhaps they were constricted in the blanket or some sort of string. Has he been outside at all, even during the day? How warm is his resting place inside the house?

    Regards,
