Also, do your best to keep the toe clean and dry. I would keep it wrapped with vet wrap and a piece of gauze around the skin area to protect it from the latex in the vet wrap. Use some antibiotic lotion on the wound too. A clean dry wound heals so much faster. :-)

Welcome to BYC! Baytril from First State vet is way too expensive for me. Look here for less expensive Baytril:
http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/959119/baytril-enrofloxacin-sources

The Baytil doses I use most are:
10mg/kg twice a day orally or by injection
15mg/kg once a day by injection
20mg/kg once a day by injection

The most common dose I see here on BYC is 10mg/kg twice a day.

With the 10% liquid and your 6.8kg bird, doses are:
10mg/kg twice a day = 0.68ml twice a day
15mg/kg once a day = 1.02ml once a day
20mg/kg once a day = 1.36ml once a day

Pills
68mg twice a day.

I just wanted to update you on my rooster because the antibiotics were so expensive I ended up taking him to a local lady that only sees birds we ended up putting him on doxycycline and she gave him a pain med but unfortunately he passed away yesterday. I didn't catch it in time and the infection went systemically. I just want to thank u guys so much for your help. I am sad to see him go but at least he isn't suffering
