    Hi. We are hand raising a pea chick, who accidentally got caught by the wheel of our electric gate...didnt get shocked. He lost nail on one toe and middle toe on same foot bad swollen and end is black on same foot. We have been treating with antibiotic cream and honey and bandages otherwise he picks his foot to pieces.....is there anything else we can do...[​IMG]

    Someone on another thread suggested vet wrap strips to wrap around a foot where the chick tore off a toenail. Maybe that would work. Try Casportpony, since she know a lot about pea fowl. If you have a regular vet, they might prescribe an anti-inflammatory like Metacam. Aspirin might also be good instead.
