    Bumblefoot and missing feathers on chest?

    I just bought 3 quail hens 2 days ago and just noticed their feet have some droppings stuck on and lumps. The white hen is also missing a patch feathers on her chest. They preen quite a lot but I haven't seen them pull any out and plus there are no feathers laying around in their cage. So maybe...

    Is this bumblefoot?

    (Don't mind the feather stuck to her foot) I noticed this small lump on my chicken's foot today. I know bumblefoot is usually on the bottom of the foot but this was between her small toe and spur. It's a bit warm to the touch as well. She is not limping or anything and doesn't appear to be in...

    Duck foot problem!

    Elvis started limping today and I noticed this. It’s basically a massive callus. I researched bumblefoot and it doesn’t appear to be that, then again I’ve never seen bumblefoot in person. Any ideas? So far I’ve soaked his feet in epsom salt and applied bag balm. I’ve including a picture of Elvis...

    Rhode island red rooster lameness

    Hi My rhode island red rooster about 5 months old has one leg lame, it is usually lying down and walks crisscrossing. Should i cull the rooster? I have tried giving multivitamins and provide calcium supplements, but no improvement. It seems to get worse as the rooster gains more weight growing up.

    Check your ducks feet!!

    This is your formal reminder to check your ducks feet, even if they aren’t acting weird!! All of my ducks were walking completely the same, no limping, no weird behavior, no lethargy. I only discovered their bumblefoot upon seeing it while they were swimming. This is pretty severe, and they...

    Bumblefoot Aftermath

    Hello again! So, I just thought I'd ask, to be proactive. Over the last year, I have been battling bumblefoot with my hens. I had to do many mini 'surgeries' to drain the bumblefoot, then I would use hen healer ointments/sprays and wrap their feet/foot. Around 4 months ago, two of my hens...

    Has anyone had any success with antibiotics for bumblefoot?

    Hey everyone. So, I dont often hear about antibiotics given to a chicken to treat bumblefoot. I saw a few threads here about it but none seemed to end in a resolution about whether it worked or not. I think I've seen one or two people in other threads say they tried it but it didn't work too...

    Ugh bumblefoot

    Caught my EE limping, so I scooped her up, checked her feet and yup bumble foot. I don’t think it’s bad, I think I caught it in time before it did get bad. I started her last night with a 20 min epsom salt soak, veterycin spay, wrapped it and put her back out, this morning soaked it, sprayed...

    Bumblefoot?

    Out Cayuga hen has been limping, looking at her feet I am guessing she has bumblefoot. No scabs just raised areas looking more pink than others, especially at her heal. Thoughts? We've got Betadine, Vetericyn, vet wrap, gauze and all the fixings to treat it. Just wondering how long to treat...

    Baytril 2.5% or 10% for Treating a Recurring Swollen Bumblefoot??

    I have heard many different opinions on whether to use or not use Baytril 2.5% or Baytril 10% to help cure a recurring and swollen bumblefoot. Question 1: Is Baytril SAFE for hens and, after a 2 week egg dumping/withdrawal period, can I eat the eggs from my treated hens? Question 2: If I...

    Bumblefoot- How aggressive to treat this?

    My hen, Maude, has bumblefoot on both feet for the second time. About this time last year she got it for the first time. The last time it wasn't as bad as this, but I removed the scabs and treated with tricide-neo and it did the trick. Since then, I have learned that if there isn't any redness...
