What's this on my barred rock's foot?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This is on KeeLee's foot. She's a 1 month old barred rock. I have 2 babies right now, KeeLee and Maxine. It kind of looks like a scab, so I thought Maxine might've pecked KeeLee. She has established her dominance. There's also a slight possibility that Maxine could be a rooster. I don't know if all this info is important or not. Do you know what this is from? She's acting like she normally does and walking fine.

It's likely that her foot was too close to some scratch, looked likeca mealworm and got pecked wink.png

They're little toes look like worms to each other, and when they're chicks, they haven't a clue that toes are toes and worms are worms; they have to try to eat a toe big_smile.png

Give it a spray with some Veterycin wound and skin care spray. It'll help it heal up in a jiffy :)
