    Okay,

    I looked for others posts like mine before I posted, I guess I don't know how to search for it well....so here I am with pictures if any has a guess as to why my leghorn girl has such angry looking wattles.....She is almost two years old and never had any problems. I have not seen this before either... We did have a 20 degree morning a few days ago, but none of the other 199 girls seem to be with any problems..

    What do you all think I should do for her?

    Thanks Ya'll!

    Maybe just from the cold? Try putting some bagbalm on them.

    Well, so slow I am. Thanks for the advice but slack me did nothing and she was fine in a day or two.[​IMG] Never would have known there was a problem.
