    On Saturday my chick got bitten by something and now the bite is green. Is this a snake bite?[​IMG]

    it doesn't look like a snake bite, but the green makes me think that it's infected

    the green can indicate bruising as well.
    what types of snakes and insects are in your vicinity?
    what other symptoms does this bird display (if any)?
