In the Brooder
- Apr 18, 2014
I have a problem than I'm hoping someone can help me with. One of my 1-2 week old chicks had a blocked vent, but I was able to clean it out and my father-in-law nursed it back to health and it seems to be doing fine. I'm afraid though, that I damaged itsfoot while I was treating it by letting it get too cold. The very tips of her toes started to bleed, so I put a band-aid on her foot to keep the other chicks from pecking at her toes. She stopped bleeding and the band-aid fell off, but now, as time goes on, the black-ness seems to be spreading up her toes to her foot/leg. I'm afraid that she'll lose her foot and then won't have a fighting chance. She seems to be doing well otherwise! Is there anything I can/should do for her foot?
