    Hello Everyone - I have a chicken - she is about 2 months old or so.. Her one "claw" seems like it doesnt want to open and she is having one heck of a time. I had to split her from the other chickens, cause they were trying to kill her.. She wasn't born like this either, just one day i saw her walking weird and then the other chicken came up and started beating her up! I grabed her outta there and put her in her own area.. near the others, but they can get her.

    Has anyone else had anything like this happen to them? Anyone know what i can do to fix it or help her?

    Thanks!
    Patti

    i think its this one thing where the chick walks funny and you have to bandage the legs together and it should go away in a week or two. . .but i think you should ask someone about the bandage thing first before you do it. . .sorry i didnt help so much
