When Chicken Toes Go Missing

When Chicken Toes Go Missing

By Wendy EN Thomas from 
Lessons Learned From the Flock
It’s the second time I’ve noticed this in a bird in my flock. Somehow, part of a toe seems to be missing.

It’s odd because I’ve never seen any of the birds limping, and I certainly haven’t noticed any kind of trauma or injury, and I refuse to believe that parts of toes just fall off – like some sort of mutant fowl leprosy. So what gives?

Have an idea about what's up 
with the missing toes? Tell Wendy ...
