    I have a little cochin mix. She is clearly the underdog. She keeps having her feet pecked until they bleed and she limps. I had her in for 3 days and withing a 1/2 hour she was reinjured. So she is back in after being treated.

    I just don't know what to do with her. I can't have a house chicken. What can I use on her feet to protect or discourage the others from pecking at her?

    Not sure but here is a bump. I also have read in threads about shoes. Not sure but I think they are for bumble foot or something. Just a thought. By the way, what color are her toes? do they look like lil worms. maybe mistaken identity.
    Good luck and God Bless!
