Suspected Bumbblefoot

post #1 of 6

Today I noticed my Rooster limping.  When I examined his feet I noticed a black rock like scab.   I suspect it is bumblefoot, but am not certain.  Is it Bumblefoot?   Suspected Bumblefoot

Welcome to BYC, it could be bumble did you try to wash it off.

I found it a few minutes before it got dark and did not have time to do a proper cleaning.  Thinking it was a piece of glass or sharp stone, I tried to pull it off with tweezers, but it was hard to get a hold of, and would not come off.  Tomorrow I will do a proper cleaning and examination.

After a long soaking and alot of scraping it came off.  Its not bumbblefoot!  I was very relieved that I did not have to do an operation.:yesss:     He is still walking weird, but I am beginning to suspect that might be because his spurs.   The way he walks really isn't a limp, now that I look at it.  He moves one leg out to the side then swings it up high before putting it down.

Haha that's great that he didn't have bumble, so what if your little rooster has a little swagger to his step, it gives him character.
