I'm a Bad Chicken Mama!!

Martha got frostbite on her comb!
I feel so bad.
I should've greased up their combs with vaseline when it got down in the teens but I didn't.
And Martha, You should've stuck your head under your wing!!!!
Now I have to put Neosporin on it everyday and she'll probably lose those points.
She's the only one that got it because her comb was the biggest!
Poor Martha.
I feel bad!

They say it's more from the humidity in the coop than the temp.
Maybe I'll remove their water at night when it gets cold again in a few days.
Right now we're having a January thaw and it's supposed to be over 60 tomorrow!
Then down in the thirties during the week.  Not good for the horses at all!!!!



  1. Oh, hopefully there was no pain. I know nothing about chickens because I can't have any where I live but I sure wish I could. Great article in southern living about raising chickens recently. Hope Martha's pain free and cheerful. Best to you too.

  2. Poor little thing...I never knew that could even happen!!! We're having that crazy up and down thing too near week in the 20's! But the cold will help kill some of the ticks at least!...:)JP
