    Hello Everyone,
    I was walking to my coop and I noticed that she was limping, so I took her inside and her toe was at an angle I clipped her toe nails and she was still walking funny. Is this a broken toe? What should I do? Can I save it? I tried to splinter it, but she just took it off. [​IMG] !

    she could be limping for any number of reasons..

    she could have a sprain or strain...

    make sure there are no open sores (or bumblefoot) on her foot....

    I would not splint or wrap unless the toe is is like at a right angle... and even then I would probably just leave it and let it heal
