the coqs do seem to suffer from this in the winter my 5 did last year rub in some vasaline to protect them from the cold also check that he hasnt got a respitary infection I lost a 4yr old coq last week to this, the first sign was a black comb but he was old for a french table bird and had outlived his 2 bros which died of heart attacks, hope this helps abit
its frostbite. in some really cold places they dub their birds to avoid this.

dubbing doesnt really work as residue comb get frost burn...............no everyday vaseline all comb and wattles and check coop for drafts

Keep the coop as dry as possible as well, as condensation can also cause frostbite...
