    Hi there! My two week old Dark Brahma pullet has a toenail on each foot (same one on both feet) that curls up and the end of the toe around the nail is yellow. Other than that she is perfectly healthy and they don't seem to bother her. Are there any preventative steps I can take to make sure this doesn't become a problem for her later? Thanks a bunch!

    soak the feet in warm water and trim them, if the toenails get too long they can curl so keeping them trimmed is a good idea!
