Rooster recovery

Buffy/Bludo, while not looking worse, still looks the same. He has been outside with the girls for several days now. The first couple day we kept him in there with the heat lamp on, but now we let him out in the morning. His comb may heal, but he is definitely going to loose some of his waddle. It is dried out and folded over. We have been applying bag balm to it at night to try and help a little. I feed everyone warm oatmeal in the mornings, sometimes with scrambled eggs, flax oil, or bird seed mixed in to warm them up a bit. They love to go through the food scraps we through in the compost pile. We are still getting 6 eggs a day, so they must be healthy enough. The biggest issue is keeping their water from freezing. Several times a day i replace their frozen water with warm water.
