    I whipped what I could off of her, but there is still some dry blood caked on where it was open, should I just leave it to heal or should I treat it? I have had bird get little scrapes on there combs but this seems a bit worse.

    Probably will heal just fine, but watch it daily to be sure the others don`t peck it or flies blow it..........Pop

    Ok I just get worried over the littlest mark on my chickens... I still haven't figured out why my Barred Rock has stubs for toes....

    Well, he never was really in a situation to have been (haha!) eaten by rats, since he was penned with the others in my flock most/his whole life... I think he ripped one off and then the others just pecked the others away, since they disapeared one by one! haha. I've never heard of rats eating chickens toes![​IMG]
