    Maybe she's pecking at it? I picked up some day-olds from TSC who had little balls of poop on their toes. I just soaked their feet in some warm water to soften it up and they fell off. They're fine now.

    stick its feet in warm water. That'll make the toe feel better... you can wrap it with a little neosporin bandaid and that would help too. Try and dry out your run and coop with some DE.
