    My six week old is bleeding on her foot, can't find the cause. What can I do? Is there ointments safe for chickens? Please help, I feel it is causing discomfort!

    Hello,

    I am sorry about your silky.

    Is she limping or anything?
    As long as the other chickens don't bug her,
    she should be fine.

    What I did when my rooster had that kind of problem,
    I mixed a little peroxide with water and soaked his foot in it.

    Then let it dry, and it should also be fine if it doesn't look infected.

    Good luck! I hope I helped!

    She was limping, and (you can't tell from photos) it was at a weird angle, so I put some ointment on it and a small splint, she is limping a little less, and I separated her.
