    Never-ending Battle with Low-grade Bumblefoot

    My almost 2 y/o GLW is prone to annual bouts of bumblefoot, usually beginning in the winter of each year. Last winter we didn't catch it until it had severely progressed (we were new to chicken-keeping and didn't even know what bumblefoot was at the time). Luckily, a vet ended up performing...

    Bumblefoot healing

    Hey guys! So I have a question about bumblefoot - I originally treated it about 6 weeks ago (dug out the infection, foot soak, polysporin, wrapped the foot for a week etc). Two of my girls had it on both feet. Their feet no longer seem red or swollen, but the scabs are there on 3 of the 4 feet I...

    We are chicken newbies. One of our girls has bumblefoot. I followed instructions, soaked the foot, removed the scab, cleaned it, used antibiotic ointment and today when we changed the dressing, it looks like she has a red line starting up her leg. Maybe I didn't get everything out, I don't...

    Recurring Bumblefoot? Early stages? (Photos)

    I've posted before about my ~1 year old GLD who had severe bumble foot on the bottoms of both feet a few months back. She had surgery, and had since healed beautifully. Sadly, the last few days we've been getting abnormally torrential rains and it's been next to impossible to keep her run dry...

    Does this Bumblefoot Look Healed?

    Hi! We recently dealt with a double-bumblefoot issue in one of our hens that was pretty far along. We had the vet do surgery to remove the plugs (she had one on each foot). We then have been soaking, cleaning, and bandaging her for the last 2 months, hoping we wouldn't have to do another...

    We think my chicken has bumblefoot but it does not seem to be healing well.

    We noticed our chicken was limping and that her foot was swollen and red- after doing some research it appeared to be bumblefoot. The bottom of her foot is swollen, but in between her toes was red and sort of crusted. We soaked the foot in epsom salts, put Neosporin on the red area, and bandaged...
