    So I have two BCM roos who's combs seem to be getting worse. I thought at firest that it was just from frost bite back when it was cold, but it seems to look worse, or at least getting worse. They eat, drink and do their rooster things all normal. Any ideas?

    Sorry, I don't know what is wrong with your roos. More info might help. Are their waddles ok? Is there healthy tissue that you can see. Is there an odor? How are you treating them?

    Also wondered if your sig line is from a Todd Snyder song??!?!

    The wattles look fine and it just looks like the tips are rotting away in to the comb. And yes it is from Tom Snyder. I wondered if any one else knew who he was.
