    I have a peacock that hurt his foot in a claw trap about a month ago. I splinted it and have kept an eye on it. Unfortunately the foot is dead and I've talked to several people that believe I should cut it off. It's snapped almost completely off and is hanging on by literally just some skin. I see bone. I'm planning on cutting it off. Any advice?

    It's not quite clear, you splinted it and the bone didn't knit?
    Can you post a picture?
    People with experience may be able to give you better advice.

    And, do your peas free range?
    If you live in a place where people put out claw traps, I would very strongly suggest that you pen your peas.
