    Just yesterday, my sister came over. Her daughter loves my chicken, Daisy. I was holding Daisy and letting her pet it. She touched her feet softly, but Daisy had a horrible reaction. She bit her ear hard. I feel so bad. But now I am realizing that Daisy has sensitive feet. Any help?

    Aw, I hope your niece did not take the bite too personally. If Daisy has a reaction when you touch her feet or just that one foot, then perhaps they are sensitive. I suppose the most common foot problem is bumble foot, which you can search the forum and find photos and all.

    But I do wonder if maybe Daisy was nervous with an less familiar person touching her feet. I don't know how young your niece is, but sometimes chickens can react differently to children.
