Bumblefoot?! - Page 4

post #31 of 37
I was reading through some of my old poultry magazines and came across a person with a similar problem, a polish with swollen feet so I will pass on the answer that was given.

The person said that it appeared to be inflammation caused by a secondary infection. This is usually a reaction that occurs after a respiratory or similar problem, but which can develop into a bacterial infection, causing swelling, providing the bird is mobile and doesn't appear to be in any discomfort it should be treated with Terramycin, a broad spectrum antibiotic, it is hard to cure completely. Claims it's very common. The magazine is based out of England, so just passing that on.

That's the antibiotics that I am giving so that's good. Did it say if it was contagious to other chickens?

Some days you just have to put on the hat and remind them who they are dealing with. Release the flying monkies!

It said it was in your environment and others are probably infected as well, dry litter, good ventilation, doesn't say whether to treat everyone.

So we were replacing a light bulb in our shed and while walking to the trash I dropped it braking the bulb. I thought I got all the pieces so my duck babies would cut their feet. Is this from them getting cuts from a piece of glass I missed or is it something else?
