    I was lucky enough to witness early on... one of my hens paying way too much attention to Roos feet. Then I noticed red on her beak and on his foot... not good. I brought him in and washed off his feet and put him in isolation. then promptly consulted BYC forum which said that maybe to coat with blue-coat would help so I've ordered it and will have to wait until it arrives. I have a momma chicken raising some chicks right now. during the day they forage with the others then at night they have their own small house.... that is where I have him so I will have to think of something else to do with him by tonight... or maybe momma and babies will go in with the girls tonight. Oy.

    If the foot is not broken, could you apply teratment to the wound then wrap a piece of duct tape around it and let him wear it till it heals?
