    NewChcikenmommy! Chirping

    Jul 9, 2011
    Her feet are peeling, & cracking. no signs of mites or anything, swollen red and one toe is actually distorted due to the swelling.
    The yellow coloration on the feet is flaking off. What can I do to disinfect the feet? I think whatever this is has effected the eye on that side. She keeps it closed, will open the eye from time to time but overall walks around with one open one closed. Should I remove the chick from the rest? I don't want to risk ostracizing this bird but I also don't want it, whatever it is, to infect the others.
