I had a very interesting thing happen to me a few days also and I will certainly keep it from happening again. My partner and I were putting some chicks into a box because we had a customer showing up soon, and we wanted to take them out to show them. I noticed one of the chicks looked ill, so I picked them up. Upon further inspection, I noticed something that I didn't expect. This chick has five toes on each foot, and on both feet, the inward facing toes were wrapped with hair so tight, that the toes turned black. I panicked, I had never dealt with this before. I tried to free the hair, but it was so far deep I couldn't reach it. The toes were dead anyways, so I cut them off. It was really hard for me because even though the chick didn't feel much, cutting off little baby toes doesn't sit right. I cleaned the wounds off with iodine and wrapped gauze and medical wrap around their feet. The chick is doing fine now, but one of the wounds is healing much slower than the other. I hope it turns out alright. My advice to everyone is to check their chicks' feet frequently. I would hate for anyone else to end up with dead chick toes that may lead to infection. Just as you check for poopy butt, check for strangled toes or feet, especially if someone in your home has long hair.
