    I've got a Jap. banty that had some kind of thread wrapped around her foot. My DH and I removed it as soon as we found it, but that was a week and a half ago, and the toe is black and dying. She seems fine otherwise, (she's been brought in the house with us) she's eating fine and does not appear to be in pain. Has anyone else had this kind of problem? What was the outcome? Any suggestions? I need help with this. I'm not sure what to do. thanks
