    so i have some 3 week old chicks and today when i was holding one i notice that one of her claws was all black and under that was this big ball when i put her under better light i notice that a strain of m hair how some how warped around her claw and cut off blood flow and found a way to get the hair off her but now it is bleeding and i don't think the claw can be saved what can i do to help her?? i feel so bad i wish i would have notice before now i feel so bad she has been walking fine and i guess that why i didn't see it before!! i have pictures but it was hard to take on my own and the light in my house is bad at taking pictures i feel so bad !!!

    It was difficult to make out too much on the picture, but if the bleeding stops, and she keeps walking, I think everything will be OK. I have a little hen that has a sort of bulb shaped toe, no claw, and she is doing just wonderfully.
