    Got some chicks from my neighbor and one of them has a wired looking foot. It seems somewhat healthy otherwise. I just want to know if there’s something I can do to help it. It walks, eats and drinks normally. I tried my best to take a pic of it. If more pics are needed I’ll gladly take more.

    Looks like an infection. Is it hot to the touch at all? Do you see a scab anywhere?

    No scabs anywhere. It doesn’t seem bothered when I touch the bad foot. And there’s no temp difference between the two feet. I also tested the temp of the other chicks feet for comparison. We got the chick like this.
