Please help me find out what this is please
That looks like a very bad case of serious frost bite. The black appendages will most likely fall of or have to be amputated. If they are just toes, the chicken should be able to walk without them. If possible, consult a vet. Was it exceptionally cold recently? Regards, Leaf
Oh, and We're glad to have you!
X2 on frostbite, or something else that killed those toes. How is the other foot?
the other foot is perfect but he's crippled so he cant walk. and he has been inside all winter so it cant be frost bite
the first toe is what concerns me because it looks like its going to fall off like the tip is dead I don't know what to do or what it is its been like this for months and I have no clue what to do.
is it possible for him to of gotten frost bite while inside??? if he's in the basement but on a pillow in a tote with blankets. not straw like usual
Either that's frostbite, or your chicken completely lost all circulation to his toes for a long time. Perhaps they were constricted in the blanket or some sort of string. Has he been outside at all, even during the day? How warm is his resting place inside the house?
Probably not. Can chickens get leprosy?
we check on him a lot so the blankets couldn't of got caught around him and its about 65 degrees he hasn't been outside since it started snowing.
