    You are on the quail section, but I was just going through new post in general so that is fine.

    Your Polish chick should be okay. You can keep putting antibiotic on it for a few days. Make sure any first aid product used for birds does not have benzocaine or lidocaine in the ingredient list because birds are sensitive to these. Once the toe heals, I bet the chick will stop limping and start growing a new nail.
