I just got my first flock of chicks today in the mail from My Pet Chicken. Unfortunately, the White Leghorn arrived with a sack of bare skin hanging from one side. It doesn't seem bothered by it and is still eating and drinking. I have separated it from the others with hardware cloth inside the brooder to prevent them from picking at it.
Has anyone ever experienced this before? Is there any chance it will get better in its own, or do I need to find a vet to remove it? The only post I was able to find that looked similar was this: https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/chick-with-weird-skin-flap-pictures.778433/
It also has a crooked toe that I've since splinted.
Thanks in advance for any advice or words of encouragement! The other 9 chicks are doing great.
