Hurt chick

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have an 8 day old chick with a growth in the back of her leg (almost like a beak) that is poking her in her rear causing a small open wound. What can I put on the wound ? Should I cut off or file down growth ? She is eating and drinking but is limping around. I have her separated from the others.

Can you post a pic?
  I ask the Lord to be with me,
As I walked through the dell,
Then came the dark of night,
And the darkness quietly fell.
  Then I trembled in great fear,
As the dark of night hung low,
Then I heard the Father say,
"The darkness is my shadow."

keep the area clean use a little newsprint on it for about a week and then just leave it to let the air get to it. Separate her from the rest of the flock to avoid pecking keep her inside and keep flies off the wound. As far as the spike thing you could file it down if it does not bleed . You don't want a second wound there. Is the baby a rooster I think the get little soles on the back of their legs not sure though
