    One of my 3 peas, 8 months old, has a cut between
    the toes on one foot. This is an injury from a week or so ago.
    I sprayed it with Blue Kote when it happened.
    I think the scab must have come off and it is bleeding
    a little this am.
    Is there something better to use?
    Also, this type injury between toes has happened to her before
    and I don't know what causes it.
    Her roost and perches are smooth, haven't seen the others go after her feet, etc.
    They do free-range some every day, always potential for injury, but no problem with the others' feet.
    Anything I should watch for ?
    Thanks.

    I think I'd try some Neospirin and vet wrap. I've never owned a pea, though. Good luck.
