    I just cleaned up the pasty butt on Rajah my week old sultan chick and now Asha is bleeding on her foot and is letting me touch her but she doesnt want me touching it and she isnt standing on it. Its not a lot of blood but blood all the same and I am very worried. Its on the 3rd ish toe where the feathers are and obiviousally it hurts for her. Rajah is still screaming over his little butt bath and it killed me to do it because they are so young and I dont want to mess up with any of these.

    I dont know about the foot issue but the wet baby, put him someplace nice and warm, heat-lamp or such and he'll recover. He might sulk until he is dry and fluffy again, but he will get through it relative unscathed.

    Clean the foot with betadine tea-1 part betadine to 10 parts water- and maybe apply a little neosporin. Don't try to cover it unless it is much more extreme than your post led me to believe. Keep an eye on it. Birds get foot injuries all the time and 9 out of 10 times they recover with minimal intervention.

    Remember to watch the chick. Other chicks LOVE to pick. And it might get worse. So just be prepared.
    Good Luck.
