    My friend has told me time and time again that you are able to cut the waddle of a chicken and it would grow back. only thing is i dont know if that is 100% true or not. and my stomach isnt the strongest so i know i couldnt do it.

    Dubbing is cutting the wattles and combs. They might grow back just a little but I don't think they grow that much to actually grow back.

    Way you think to do this? You should treat the couse of the swollen waddle, becouse if you won't the situation will return.

    Maybe she has an abscess full of pus, that you need to drain? Or she have some wound? You should check!
