Pictures of the bottom of the foot pad would be helpful. Here are 3 good articles by the same author about bumblefoot with videos of bumblefoot surgery:

Eggcessive is right - pictures would be really useful to help us see what is going on.

 

Can you describe the symptoms a bit - what does his foot look like? Is he limping / refusing to walk on it?  How long has it been like this?

 

Bumblefoot is an uncomfortable and long-term condition for a bird, but unless it has become severely infected it is not usually life-threatening.

 

The more information you can give us about your roo and his foot the better we will be able to help you.

 

Started out with 3 birds. Currently at 13 pullets and 2 roos

- chicken maths is definitely getting the better of me!

 

Member of the Derperella Club - we're all just going round the rooster here.

 

RIP Blackie (the best hen ever), Rusty (too curious once too often) and Cinders (my grey girl)
