Bump on top of chickens foot?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone! I have a hen and she has a bump on top of her foot. I don't think its a Bumblefoot but I was getting worried since its been there for so long. A couple years probably. It is above the foot like I said. I will try to get a pic.

 

 

 

 

Thanks!

Bumblefoot infection can be on the bottom of the foot, on the toes, and on top of and in between toes. Here are some good links to help if it is bumblefoot:

It is at the ankle. Should I treat it like a bumble foot?

Can you post a picture of your chicken's ankle? Does it eel puffy like a small abscess? If you think it is bumblefoot, you can try soaking the foot for several days in epsom salts or betadine and water to see if it "comes to a head."  Sometimes cleaning the feet also help you to see the classic dark spot on the bottom of the foot. There is a product called TriCideNeo, that is for fish, but can be used to soak feet that have bumblefoot. I would rather do the surgery myself, but I never do it unless the chicken is limping or the bumblefoot looks very red, swollen, and painful. Everyone has their own method to knowing when to do surgery or not.
