So after a week of healing in the garage, I put the bird back with the flock - out into the bitter cold run with no chickens in sight due to the temp - and immediately the offending chicken came out into the yard and pecked the foot a couple of times and it was bloody again. I tried to separate the offender this time, but one of the other birds just started pecking the foot too. So now I have to cull a 6 month old chicken who is laying eggs daily right through all of this trauma. Suggestions? Any central Iowan interested in a Light Brahma pullet with a very minor foot injury? I will most likely end up butchering her before Sunday is out because my wife is not happy about the chicken poop all over the garage.
