    Black toes often mean frostbite. Are you in an area that gets very cold?

    Black usually means that the tissue is necrotic (dead).. you really have had some bad luck in the past week or so - the really bad CRD, the mites, and now this!! [​IMG] I'm so sorry you are having to deal with so much!! [​IMG]

    Quote:Thank you [​IMG] We are going to put her down because the black is moving up the foot and she just wants to hide, we tried to help her....this sux

    Also, our eggbound girl won't open her eyes anymore and we tried everything for her,

    Bless you for working so hard to try and save your girls. I think you are doing the right thing about the one with the black toes!
