    I have a chick with a foot issue one of it's toe's is web to the other it looks like the middle toe is webbed around the end toe. it walks fine just looks funny. it looks like it's only has 2 toes and I'm not sure how it will grow.

    If I could get the web cut it would be fine but I'm no doc and I can't do it.

    You could decide to do nothing, if it's only cosmetic, and give it a funny name, or...
    Clean the area with rubbing alcohol. rinse with water, and do what you think needs to be done. Then apply a thin layer of Neosporin. Afterwards, keep it in a clean environment for a couple days, being sure to keep the wound clean. Should heal quickly and be fine!
