Oh no! I didn't realize new born chicks could have bumblefoot. What should I look for? Would it be the same as adults only smaller? We have done multiple bumblefoot surgeries on our older birds, but I think I'd be afraid to try it on a tiny peep. It does seem a little bit better now, but I'll go check its feet now.
IMHO, there's no way it has bumblefoot. BF is a staph infection from a bird having a cut and then packing dirt, poop, and etc into it and it developing into a staph infection. Plus, it would still walk, just limp.
I'd say give electrolytes in a syringe two or three times a day. He should improve.
I checked the feet & they look fine. It's been getting around better as the day progresses. I don't have a car but when hubby gets home we're going to TSC to pick up some electrolytes.
