    Hello! We have a precious light brahma, Razzmatazz, who seems to have one toenail growing on top of the other. Does anyone know if this is normal or what we could do to help her? It does not seem like it is causing her pain. Thank you so much!

    If it's a breed known for having extra toes, or even has some of that genetic influence anywhere recently, you can get extra toes or claws in a wide variety of places. A photo would help but chances are it's nothing to worry about.

    Best wishes.
