    I ran out of room Sorry;

    It is biting cold here in Jacksonville today, It may dip to freezing.

    Would it be a good idea to slather on some vasaline or bagbalm onto the chickens combs or is that just for damage control. I need my babies to be healthy and pretty.

    It should help prevent frostbite, or so I hear. We dont get that cold in Texas, so I've never had to do it.
