Frostbite

Treatment is gradual warming.

The toes and feet are the areas most prone to frostbite on birds. Pale, dry, avascular skin areas are indicative of recent frostbite. Untreated frozen tissue may become necrotic, often resulting in amputation. Treatment consists of submerging the frostbitten area in gradually warmer circulating water for 20 to 30 minutes. If the area still seems symptomatic of frostbite, contact your veterinarian.
