    I have 6 white leghorn is and they are all extremely healthy, or so I thought... As I walked into the coop a few minutes ago, I saw one of my best layers getting out of the nest box. She is quite skittish, so I rarely hold her. When she jumped on the ground, I saw the sides of her toes. I saw how they were larger than the rest, so when I picked her up, I couldn't believe what I saw. I can promise you these were not there any more than a month, but they look pretty bad. From what I've read, they look like bumblefoot. What do y'all think? If it is, what should I do?

    Here is a picture of her feet:
