    One of my hens came in the coop today with a cut foot. Its bloody.....but it's not bleeding right now. I think she stepped on a nail or something sharp outside. The cut is right between two of her claws like up at the top part. But it's hard to see because she is a Brahma so she has feathered feet. It really isn't bleeding that much....but the feathers on her foot have blood on them.....she wasn't limping or anything. Do you think I should just leave it alone or should I put something on it??? What should I put on it??? Do you think the other chickens will peck at it (its not really THAT noticable)??? I put her in the coop with the other chickens.....it's nighttime and there all on the roosts. I thought about bringing her in the house.....but decided not too.

    If it's not ripped excessively or bleeding excessively she'll be fine. Just check on her in the morning.
