I tried to submit this yesterday, but it didn't go, so I'll try again. I am new to the chicken thing, having inherited 12 laying hens when we recently bought an acreage. I have a sick Easter Egger who was being picked on and pecked raw in the flock, I suppose because she has vent gleet. She also has bumblefoot in both feet. I removed her from the flock to treat her, but cutting her feet - can't do it. Not knowing what else to do, I took her to my dog's vet yesterday. My vet treats other birds, but usually not chickens. But since other birds get bumblefoot, she said she would treat it. However, she said it was in early stages and she did a makeshift job of cushioning and wrapping the hen's feet. I am supposed to bring her back tomorrow to be properly wrapped. That's all. Shouldn't she at least be on antibiotics to get over the infection? Anyway, Layla the Hen was quite the celebrity in the animal clinic yesterday. Several vet techs had to come see the chicken with her feet wrapped, and the vet had to take a picture. In the meantime, this is what I am doing: Epsom salts soaks, antifungal cream, ACV in water, plain yogurt in feed for vent gleet; antibiotic ointment on pecked area; and now, both feet are wrapped. I have Blu-Kote but haven't used it yet, and I have ordered a chicken saddle. I am glad to have found this group. I have learned so much and it's great to have other chicken people to learn from and share with. You understand.
