    Help, I just noticed last night that my Bantam Roo, Mr. Peep, was limping. When I caught him and looked at his foot I noticed that the whole toenail was missing. He is limping a lot this morning. I have not been able to catch him so far. What should I do for him? I am so worried about him.[​IMG]:idunno

    if he is bleeding, then wash the wound, maybe a little blukote or some neosporin (without numbing agents!)

    if no one is picking on him, leave him be. if he's being picked at, separate him so he doesn't become cannibalized upon.

    hope he feels better right quick! [​IMG]
