Foot injury?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. I just noticed that my girl, Ariel, has a swollen foot this morning. I don't know if it's been like this for a while or not. Has anyone dealt with this before or know what to do for her?





It's only her right foot and it does not feel like it's a fluid filled blister at all but more stiff. She's not a big, heavy girl. She's a smaller golden comet or RSL. She usually free ranges all day, one of the first ones out and last ones in at night. She and her sister stick together and travel far and wide. Right now, I have her in some warm water with lavender oil, soaking. She's going to be upset with me but she's going in a crate for a few days. I'll probably bring her sister, Daffodil, in to stay with her. Is there anything else I should do for her to help? Does anyone have any clue what it is?

My guess is bumble foot. Its and infection. Never actually dealt with it but I have done lots of research

Bumblefoot would be my guess. Do a search. There is a surgical treatment as well as a soak treatment.

Swedish flower hens, Orpingtons, including the albino gene, viral and Bourbon Red turkey. For now. I live where people travel to vacation, why should I go anywhere?

Thanks everyone. I had the impression that bumblefoot usually had a large sore with it. I was looking things up and along worth soaking her feet, I think I'm going to give her some tylan since I have a bottle of it laying around and it was mentioned a couple times in what I was reading. She doesn't really have any big scabs but I may try to dig it out.
