    I came back from my vacation, went to check on my chickens, and one of them was holding its leg up, when i looked closer, I noticed a couple of its toes were missing. I'm new to the chicken thing, is there some kind of chicken foot disease they can get, or did something, somehow eat its toes off. I know this sounds weird.

    Rats can eat chickens toes off at night in the coop.
