    I check my Muscovies weekly to maybe bi weekly at most for foot and other issues and never noticed anything out of the ordinary until today. Is this Bumblefoot? Is it possible for it to happen in so many spots on both feet so quickly? She was holding one foot up a little at one point when...

    Bumblefoot with no pus?

    One of my hens has two marks on her feet that resemble the brown scabs that look like bumblefoot. I’ve been soaking both feet in epsom salts and doing normal treatment and always making sure to wrap the feet carefully. Whenever I remove the top of the scab, theres no pus underneath. I saw...

    Is this bumblefoot? Please help

    I have a 3mo old Salmon Faverolle who is limping and has a black circle scab on her foot. I am a first time chicken mum, should I take her to the vet? It looks like she’s in pain and I’ve been spraying the vetericyn on her injury twice a day and cleaned out her bedding area. What should I do?

    Severe bumblefoot?

    So a few weeks ago, we noticed our rooster, Hugo, had a large swollen area on his foot/ankle. It didn’t appear to be bumblefoot at first because it was higher up on his foot and didn’t have the “scabbed” area. He was still getting around okay, so we decided to watch it. As time went on, we...

    Trying to remove bumblefoot from rooster. No kernel or anything—what do I do?

    My family and I have tried to remove our rooster’s bumblefoot, but the scab is so thick, and no matter how dig we deep, there’s no pus, no kernel, or anything—just blood and only blood. I’m honestly at a loss and stumped on what to do. Anything would help at this point. Thanks — Harun

I make it a practice to check our flocks' feet every few weeks as they are free range and I want to head off any problems. Everything is...
