    Second Bumble foot surgery, no pus

    About two months ago I treated my Bielefelder hen for bumble foot. I pulled off the scab and the underside was a bit yellowish, but I didn't see a core or pus or anything. Now, a few days ago, I treated her again because the bumble foot didn't go away. Same thing, the scab was yellowish and a...

    2X Failed Bumblefoot Surgery, What to do Next?

    Hi everyone - I've recently adopted a 2.5 year old California White Leghorn chicken that had a small, 5mm diameter bumblefoot scab on her right foot. For two weeks, I did daily epsom salt soaks and bandaged with gauze and Neosporin prior to surgery to see if the scab would go away on its own...

    Any luck with surgery??

    My sweet barred rock has an oviduct impaction we have been medically managing (with a vet) for almost 3 months now, but we are getting to the point where a decision has to be made. Surgery would fix the problem, but the procedure is very invasive. I’m concerned if she would make it through...

    Bumblefoot surgical removal (advice needed on result)

    I received an older cockerel a few days ago who arrived with bumblefoot (confirmed by me and another experienced chicken keeper). He came off a farm, so the previous owner cannot tell me exactly how long it's been there for. Suffice to say, looks like it's been a while. To treat, I soaked his...

    First time bumblefoot surgery success!

    Well I had a chicken, Aretha, that had bumblefoot that I just noticed today. It was a fairly large scab, so I operated. I had my mother hold her in a towel and keep her head covered while I worked on her foot. Aretha, for the most part, was very calm during surgery. While I'm sure it still hurt...
