Chicken feet problem!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My hen, Bonnet, has a scab on the bottom of one of her feet. Today I was holding her in the lawn chair when she flew off my lap on the concrete and caused her scab to start bleeding. I am now a little bit concerned about the scab and now my question is:

Is there anything I can put on her foot to help it heal?????

Thank you so much for yalls help!!smile.png

She probably has bumble foot, if so research care on removal of bumble foot care. Scab will need removed and cleaned out along with whatever is lodged in her foot to cause it, Soak in warm water for 20min and peal it out, put tripple antibiotic on it and wrap foot with medical tape. It is tacky and will stay put and can get a Wal-mart in the bandage section usually bright colors 1" wide, if wider strip to 1" befpre use so it will wrap on foot easier. Clean and check everyday and rewrap until hole closes.
