So earlier this winter I wrote a very long post about what happened when our rooster, The Admiral, ended up with a systemic infection due to frostbite. Well, he survived and here is what his comb looks like now.
His wattles are completely red and normal looking, though dramatically smaller as the frostbitten portion fell off. His combs are also much smaller, and still have black on them. It will stay there the rest of his life.
However, he is healthy, combative, and normal, even during very cold bouts.
