Hurt chick

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have an 8 day old chick with a growth on the back of her leg (almost like a beak) that is poking her in the rear causing a small wound. What is this ? Should I cut it off ? What should I put on the wound ? She is eating and drinking but limps. I have her separated from the others. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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
