My poor little RIR has been battling bumble foot in both of her feet since I think January. I can't figure out what's going on. My other 2 chickens are fine so I have no idea what she's been stepping on. I don't like the idea of separating her because I know it's very on hard on them. Because of this I'm also hesitant to put her on antibiotics because I'll have to separate her so we know which eggs are hers. I'll do whatever I need to do I need to do to get her healthy though. We can't eat her eggs while she's on antibiotics, correct? What can I do?
The foot on the left is the one we just did again last week. I think it's looking much better. I soaked it in Epsom salts and Betadine and bandaged her back up after this picture was taken. I put Veterycin, Betadine and Neosporin on it before I wrapped it back up. I'm hoping we got it this time because it looks better than it did last time at this point. Her other foot appears a bit discolored. It's like it blew up overnight. I've been keeping a close eye on it and it got bad again really quickly. I'll be taking care of it tomorrow. Do they make chicken shoes? ;)
