I have 4 3 week old chicks that I recently took from a mama hen. They are now in the house under a light. They are all D'uccles. I started with 7 and the mamas let a rat take the other 3. So when I took these guys away one has a sore eye and it looks all puffed up and is scabbing over. It also has these scabs on its feet that look like huge growths. and a couple scabs on its body, and on its underside is a huge area that is like a giant scab. If I pull on this the chick screams!! So that is chick 1. chick 2 has a swollen eye but no scab and not so bad. Doctored it with warm water compress. it also has a few scabs on its body they look to be healing, and one growth on its toe. Chick 3 has a few "growths" on its feet. and a very small growth on its beak. chick 4 has a couple growths on its feet and toes also. I do not know what they are. I did warm compress' and pulled off the scab under it looked like the pics of bumble foot. But the sore was not on the foot. The eye of chick one looks terrible like some hunch eye or something. I have never had this happen before and I have no idea what the mama hen may have done or the rat. I do not know. They seem very healthy besides these "growths" . I am constantly changing the paper under them so they are not walking on poo or food. They seem to make a huge mess with the chick starter too! For the ones with eye problems should I put something on their feet to prevent scratching their eye? could that be why the eye is swollen? self inflicted? And if I should put something on their feet, what? I am also putting ACV in their water daily when I change it. Thinking about down sizing their feeder. Oh, and chick 1 also has a sore on its right wing. Like something pulled the first two big feathers right out. It too is all scabbed over. Trying to help them but there must be more I can do. Supplements. bandaging. I don't know something. I wish I could post pics but I have been unable to do so. Any help would be great. Thanks.
