    We have had snow on the ground well over a month now, and it is taking its toll on my chickens. I went out this afternoon and found that my poor turkens feet were bleeding. That only thing that could be causing it is the snow. Possibly from trying to big down in it. The only thing I can think to do is to put vaseline on them.[​IMG] this is the first time I ever had to deal with bleeding toes from weather. Am I doing right or does anyone have any other ideas. I will go out tonight and see if I can take pictures. The only other thing I can try is to keep him locked up until healed.

    I would be concerned for staph...(bumblefoot) ... for this reason I would keep separted until the feet are healed.
