First Medical Intervention on a Chicken

Updated: Jul 7, 2020

Very minor, yet I did our first medical intervention on one of our Sussex roosters. We got fifteen 40-week old Sussex chickens last week. One rooster has a bumble foot, another one has broken feet / toes, and everyone else has pretty long nails. I took care of everything except what looks to me like the broken foot/toes. That will have to wait till a tad more reading or we will just eat that roosters since we have a little too many roosters to hens.

Not sure exactly what their situation was before. They might have unloaded the problematic or in need of maintenance birds
