My chickens waddle is still swolen.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So, i dont know if this is ever going to go away or not. but i want to know how to fix my chickens waddle.. 

 

 

 

 

Also, another concern is that i havent gotten eggs a lot of them regularly in about a week and a half (this chicken isnt acting sick or anything, but i cannot fix this myself. i have someone who might be able to help. but until she is available i cant. im kinda worried about her. 

 

 

As for them not laying eggs. is it molting season coming up? where i live in a vry hot climate, and its been pretty hot the last little while so i can see if that was why they arent laying, but other than that everyone is fine. im just really worried about this one.

Are you sure that the wattle is swollen? It looks like it might be genetically longer than the other.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

It's possible it's longer than the other. But it's been puffy sand swollen for over a month and hasn't gone down. She's acting fine as I said. It just looks a bit uncomfortable

Maybe broad spectrum antibiotics then?

I guess after a few days of treatment you could lance the swollen area and see if there is any puss in there - you will certainly know if there is an infection of some kind then..
