My 6wk old mille fleur d’uccle got a small scrap on the top of her foot. I cleaned her up, and she seems to be doing just fine. For the next few days or so; I'll be keeping a close eye on her. How long should she take to heal?

Chickens heal pretty quickly from minor injuries. Hard to give an exact time frame but maybe a few days, a week at most? Yes keep an eye on it and as long as it doesn't swell or seep, get red, she doesn't limp, etc. it should be good to go.

She hasn't limped at all... I've been watching her, and acts like nothing happened to her. She is keeping up with her buddies, eating, drinking and pooping. They act more like something is up. Her buddies have been sticking extra close; even more so than they normally do. It's like they are more upset that she is hurt than she is. Those three have been tight since the day I put them together in the brooder box.
