    I lfinally caught our big rooster, Earl and looked at his legs and feet. One of his legs looks like it's bleeding but it isn't. He's missing a nail on one of his toes and a nail on the other foot is split. My wife thinks he has a deadly disease and all the rest of the chickens are going to die. I said he probably got that way from fighting with the other 2 roos. Any ideas? I can't take a picture, cause he won't even come near me after I picked him up.
