New to chickens

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm fairly new to having chickens. I have 3 8 week Olds ( had 4) but my dog got one. I also gave 2 that are almost 3 weeks old. Anyway, the dog killed one last Thursday and that same day later on I noticed one limping pretty badly. She had two very small cuts on her toe I cleaned them and but antibiotic on it. She's eating and drinking well but shows no improvement on walking. The cuts have healed well but on the underside of the toe there is a bruise kind of. I've asked where I bought them and they think it's not an infection. I don't feel any broken bones. I'm trying to make sure it is not bumble foot.help please

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! I'm so ver sorry about your losses to the dog. This thread is great for tips on dog intros ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1091691/keeping-dogs-and-chickens-tips-for-a-harmonious-introduction/0_30

It does sound rather like bumble foot you are describing. Would you be able to get a pic and post to in this section ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
I'm sure members there will be able to advise you on what the problem could be.

Good luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome to Backyard chickens. Dogs and chickens should never meet. The chickens end up dead.
