Okay the newbie here somehow inherited or this happened in the whole 7 days I have owned these chickens.. I am going to upload these pictures. I don't know what this is, looks like a growth off of the foot, but it appears its killing the toenail and finding infection in her foot. I did soak her foot in hydrogen peroxide.. as an RN I am familiar with treatment, but for this and a chicken? Thought it was a tick at first, so I did the hot nail to back out its head,but that didn't work.. so now I am at a loss. Before I spend $$$ at a vet.. anyone have any bright experienced answers or ideas? What is this and what do I do with it?
