Another one with sore foot

Post  ron on Fri Mar 27, 2009 3:13 am

Yesterday morning the little male I brought in as it looked like he wasbeing bullied by his brothers was running around his box, this morning he was doing the same but this time I noticed there were spots of blood on the cage floor. On close inspection there was blood on his one foot he must have been running around trying to get out and made his foor so sore he bled, will now get his outside run finished tonight and he can go outside, while his 3 brothers are putting on alot of weight this little one still looks like a baby.

When Edie made her feet sore I bathed them in diluted savlon. She has done it a few times, quite a lot of blood a couple of weeks ago, I did no more than clean her cage, put in clean newspaper (as is usual) and no more blood since.

The weather has been pretty cold again and she seems more settled - she seems to get more stressed and hurts her feet when the weather improves. Amazing what she knows from inside an insulated shed!!
