    Hey everyone... one of my girls ripped her toenail off somehow. It was bleeding profusely but fortunately its dried up. My three other hens were of course following her and licking up the blood. So, I have separated the injured one is there anything else I can do? Will the toenail grow back okay? Im afraid Ill have to separate her until the toenail grows in? I don't want the others pecking at her (She is usually the odd ball anyways.). [​IMG]
