about 3 days ago, i noticed that one of my chickens had a dark redish color claw (finger nail) that was surely causing her pain. she would still scratch around with it but often she'd put her leg up so not to put pressure on her foot with the hurt claw. its the on the middle longest toe so i think it happened from her scratching on something. when i first saw it i figured that it would probably heal naturally but i now cannot stop thinking about it. i'm tempted to put neosporin on it and wrap it with gauze or something. since she still scratches with it i know it will take way longer to heal on its own and maybe even get infected. if anyone has any ideas id like to see them.
