    I have a 6month old roo who this morning was limping when I went to feed them, upon inspection I found his middle toe completely broken off. Just the meaty inside is there, not bleeding to bad, got him inside, cleaned toe with warm water and apllied new skin antiseptic allowed to dry, then apllied a nail hardener polish. Hes now warm and perched on a stick in his cage. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    My only advice would be to make sure your nail polish isn't red or a bright color. That might make the chickens want to pick at it.
    I think you did a good job!
