I was feeding the chicks and came across one that had like poop around its foot and at the end it was black. So I went and washed off the dried poop with warm water and this is what it looks like underneath. What should I do?
looks to me like that toe lost circulation and will probably drop off. I really don't think you can save it. Its kind of like when you band the testicles of a bull or a billy goat...they dry up and fall off from lack of blood to feed the tissue. I would leave it as, and keep her coop area clean so infection does not set in.(I don't think that should be a worry) Only worry if it gets really warm and red or moves into the rest of the toe/foot.
