Yeah, I really doubt bumble foot but that's the first thing that came to mind.

How bad is the swelling? Can you post pictures yet?

I like to get some probiotics in them early as well.

You say he can't walk at all?

He won't walk on them, what's a good probiotic for a chick
post #6 of 6

You can start with plain yogurt or kefir.

Pet shops may have an avian probiotic powder.

I use this which is formulated especially for chickens.

Make sure it gets plenty of water even if you have to tube.
