I was just vacuuming out the brooder, like I do once a week or so. Got done, put fresh shavings in and went to get food and clean water. I got back and saw drops of blood on the fresh shavings and it took me a few minutes to figure out who it was and what it was. It's my sons chick, Fuzzworth! They are not quite 5 week old Lt Brahmas and have feathered feet, so it's kind of hard to see what happened exactly. At first it looked light he lost part of a toe, but like I said it's really hard to see with those fuzzy feet. Looking closer, it looks like he broke some feathers (?), but I can't be sure. I took her to the sink and washed it off, then put some ointment on it to see if it would stop bleeding. It's a MESS! I can't tell if it has stopped or not, and since the others were pecking her foot (that's how I found who it was), I took her out and put her in another clear container next to her flock-mates. She is screaming her head off and ther others are looking down at her (theres a perch in their brooder - it's actually a converted dog crate, but it works) and making noises. I hate to keep her seperate but don't want her being pecked either. Can a chicken break a feather causing it to bleed, or what could have possibly happened?! I'm freaking out! My son is 6 and due home from school in a few hours. If something has happened to his Fuzzworth, it won't be good... What do I need to look for, check for or do? Please, help me! Thanks!
