I have a young hen who is missing toenails on both feet. One is worse than the other. Those toes are also swollen. She is walking, roosting, and scratching normal. I have put blukote on the toes to try to help keep them clean. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

You might post a picture because that sounds like the toes may have suffered some frostbite or tore off the nails somehow. BluKote or Betadine is what I would probably use.
