hi,

My favorite hen seems to have lost a few toes due to frostbite. They are healed nicely. I didn't even notice at first. I just happened to notice he wasn't walking and scratching like she used to. Where her toes/nail were are clean stumps. Will they grow back or will she adapt?

She will adapt, but they will not grow back. Many chickens learn to live almost normal lives without a leg or being blind, so don’t worry about your hen, she’ll be a totally happy hen, even without her toes!
