    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...

    Bumblefoot scab not coming off.

    Hi everyone! So, I had planned to remove Brownie's (my rooster) bumblefoot from both feet yesterday, but it was too hard even after half an hour of soaking in warm water! I tried to pluck it away using a pair of tweezers (I've done this before as well) but the bumblefoot scab was very firm...

    Bumblefoot frustration

    I know there is a wealth of info on bumblefoot treatment so maybe I’m looking for advice and maybe to vent a little. My chickens are basically my families pets. The poop in their coop is scooped out every morning. They have a soft sandy run and are let out a couple hours every day to free...

    Early Bumblefoot or just fat toes?

    I'll try to get some photos a little later - I tried earlier with my husband's help but he wasn't really sure what I wanted/needed so what I have isnt super clear and they're a little too skittish to keep trying over and over, I'm trying to tire them out a bit with a big swim. I have two...

    Bumblefoot - how to help easily.

    I got 6 new layers in April. I would say 3 were robust, but lots of green and vitamins and extra protein seemed to help them all. Anyways, we've had a few issues, that are sorted, mostly poopy vents and lice that came with a vengeance in the spring, first time for that beauty. But today, I...

    Doktor doom lice spray?

    I’ve been trying to treat one of my guineas for suspected bumble foot and come to the conclusion that it’s mites. There’s no bumble foot root and no scab anywhere and it’s both feet that are affected. She’s not easy to catch, so I’ve been periodically epsom salt soaking her feet and then...

    Is this bumblefoot? Please help!

    Today when I picked up one of my quails I saw that one of her feet is swollen. I soaked her feet in warm water and I took the photo afterwards. I've already seen bumblefoot on a chicken but I have no idea what to do. Is this even bumblefoot? What should I do?

    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...
