Hi. I have a 1 yr old Cochin whose feet keep getting injured. Tonight, I saw that her toenail had been ripped out somehow. It was bleeding quite a bit, so I brought her in the house, stopped the bleeding, cleaned it off, applied antibiotic ointment, and wrapped it. Then I noticed a bumble starting on her other foot. It isn't bad yet (no swelling or redness, just a small scab). I thought it was going away with treatment, but it either keeps happening to this poor hen, or it never fully heals. I don't have pics because it's too dark currently. Her roost is a sanded and painted 2x4 (4 inch side up). Run floor is deep litter with pine, leaves, dirt, wood chips. Coop floor is deep bedding with super fine cut pine shavings (super fluffy and soft) over coated plywood. Roost is 18 inches up. I clean poop daily from surfaces and add stuff to the run weekly. However, because of hawks, they are in the run far more than they used to be, and I wonder if that is contributing because, y'know, poop... Here's what I've tried to prevent these things so far: Lowering the roost from 30 to 24 to 18 inches Trying different bedding (larger pine shavings, hemp) Adding a longer ramp to decrease steepness Lifting her up to and down from the roost Keeping her foot feathers trimmed and washed, but, admittedly, it's been a while since I washed her feet because it hasn't rained The poor thing has not had healthy feet yet. What am I doing wrong? She is the only bird I have whose feet are problematic, and I have a total of 4 feather footed birds. They all eat Scratch & Peck grower (18% protein) with occasional treats and oyster on the side. They forage for approx 3 hours per day and eat lots of grass, bugs. And worms. This hen is particularly skilled at finding worms! Yum!
