    Yesterday my 3 week old chick managed to rip a nail off outside somehow. I cleaned up the wound and stopped the bleeding. The end of the toe had gone black. I got the rest of the nails clipped at the pet shop and the guy there said the nail probably won't grow back. Is this likely the case? I really hope it's not.
    Thanks. :)

    Some of my chickens lost nails, and they're doing fine. But it won't grow back.
