Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to hear about your chick. Could you take a pic and post in the emergency section? Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

For something broken quick action is needed to try and correct the break before the bones heal in the wrong place. I'm sure members in the emergencies section will be able to help you.

Wishing you the very best of luck with your chick fl.gif

I agree with Yorkshire Coop,  if you can't take him to a vet please do post on the ER site  ASAP!!.. Did he lose  just the  nail, or broke the toe?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
