In the Brooder
- Mar 26, 2012
It looks like a foot is growing out of her chest. This is my 3 month Americauna pullet. I noticed her chest feathers looking a little ruffly this evening, so I caught her and this is what I found. There was a flap of dried blackened skin over this patch of partially open/ partially blackened skin (size of quarter) and it had these two (3/4 inch long) stick like things sticking out of it- only they had skin growing or wrapped up and around the two stick like things. I put some antibiotic ointment on it and sent her back out, but goodness- it is strange!! What do I do?? My finger is holding the skin covered object. You can see the black tip and the skin growing up and around it.
