So a typical Saturday morning at my house, my former head hen (she has been taken down a notch or 2 as the new members are adults and shaking things up) got a bath in the bathtub (had to do a check on her feet since she is a recent bumblefoot sufferer. She is molting so she laid a very soft shelled egg and it was smeared everywhere on her so she got a spa day. Her feet are completley healed! I started with Tricide Neo soaks about 5 weeks ago, 3 soaks the first week, 2 the next and once a week after. They are entirely healed and healthy and clear!
Then I went on to do the monthly chicken health checks.....The Brahma rooster was a mess. He is missing a outside claw not sure how that happened, let's just say he was NOT a member of the fluffy butt club. I wish I could have got a picture of the beast finally caught and held but I was very happy that once I had him secured and in the bathtub he was a complete angel. Imagine my at least 18 lbs rooster just standing between my knees getting his feet administered to with no drama whatsoever.
Does anyone with feathered feet birds know....is it normal for the feathered portion of the feet to look red and angry almost all the time?
