    I have had situations like this before - MANY times. In fact, I have it going on right now with one of my turkeys. All you have to do, is leave the chicken alone and it will get better. I promise. [​IMG]

    The first time it happened was with my Jersey Giant pullet named Onyx. I was so confused. I didn't know what to do. But, it got better. Like I said, this has happened to me many times before. The foot will get better by itself.
