Bloody sores on top of feet

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Can anyone explain what this may be?   It was only one foot last week which I cleaned with betadine solution and put antibiotic cream, but last night noticed both feet are like this.  With the blood, of course, the others are pecking.  Never experienced this before. Any help would be appreciated.

Spray some BluKote on the wounds to help prevent pecking. It looks like the others are either pecking her feet. or sometimes rats cat do that on the roost at night. If it is just on the one hen, it is probably from pecking.

Another chicken has it on one foot, but hers is not as bad, so I'm suspecting the rodents.  We had a problem last summer, but thought we got them all.  I suppose not. Thank you.
