    I believe the "web" is the flap of skin tissue in the "elbow" of the wing.

    thanks.. im just so nervous! i have never vaccinated chickens before. usually the hatchery does it for me.. but i dont want to hurt them. all of my chickens are tame and sweet.. im just scared ill hurt them.

    but i dont want them to get the pox. i already have one that has it. im so sad for him.
