Is this bumblefoot?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm new to keeping chickens..... I noticed a "growth" on one of my hens foot, with what I though was a thorn on her foot pad. She is limping a bit. Is this bumblefoot? How should I treat this? Thanks in advance[IMG][IMG]

Yes it is bumblefoot.
I cured my chicken of bumblefoot by picking the scab and cleaning it out. Soaked it in Epsom salt every other day and packed antibiotic ointment in there and wrapped it with vet wrap. It took me a couple months for it to go away, don't give up.
