My Buff Orpington hen has had trouble growing her middle claws. Over the past few weeks it lookedlike the one on her left foot was growing but today it looks like the nail broke off. I haven’t gotten a good look at it but I know it’s not bleeding. She is resting a lot and only walks when she needs food or water and she’s only standing on one leg. I have another injured chicken with an injury I don’t separate them for, should I separate both of them in my smaller cage or just separate the one?

How old is your Buff Orpington? Can you get a closer picture of her toes? It sounds like she did something traumatic to break off her toenail which is causing her pain in the entire foot and it hurts to put weight on the leg/foot now?
Do you know how the other chicken got injured?

My chickens are around 6 months old. The other chicken put its beak in the cage holes and got stuck. I’ve treated her toe so I can’t get a picture of the injury.
