I just noticed about an hour ago that one of my easter egger chicks (2 and a half weeks old) has something wrong with its foot; one of its toes is red and looks like it's had the outer scales picked off or something. I took some pictures: I have pictures of this same chick from July 27th (10 days ago) and the toe is perfectly normal. I have more pictures of the same chick from July 31st (6 days ago) and you can see something on that toe but I thought it was just dry poo. Finally, I have pictures of the chick from August 2nd (4 days ago) where you can see the redness/change in color but I must not have noticed it at the time. Here's the chick on July 27th: On July 31st: And on August 2nd: Does anyone know what might be wrong and what to do about it? EDIT: After some googling, it sounds like "constricted toe" might be the issue? I'm not sure. I don't see anything wrapped around the toe and it has been very humid here lately. Here's a description of it: http://www.avianweb.com/birdnursery.html#constricted 2ND EDIT: Added a closeup video of the toe as well as attempting to remove the problematic area in Post #3 in this thread. 3RD EDIT: I called around to vets even out of state but every place seems to be closed for the weekend. The one place I did reach said they thought it was infected and that the chick needed antibiotic or the toe would fall off or the infection would spread and the entire foot/leg might fall off. Does anyone here have any advice on this? Is there a specific type of antibiotic I should be giving the chick or some I should avoid? I'm worried that just giving the chick antibiotic won't be enough with how that toe is looking, but I'm unsure of what else to do.
