    I think it depends on the overall environment. It can be pretty cold but dry air is safer that MOIST air. Moist air leads to frostbite faster--I believe. I would think a general google search for frostbite would get you some specific answers. I woudl think combs and chicken feet would be have a similiar response to our skin.
