    I have been following the forum for a while but I have ran into something I need help with. Annie has been limping around and I thought it was the beginning of bumble foot. I started treating her thinking I got it early. No change in the foot but I found a rather large lump at the top of her leg. I am going to try to upload an image but this is my first post, keep your fingers crossed.[​IMG]


    Any help in identification and how to treat is greatly appreciated.

    I'm sorry about your hen. [​IMG] That looks like some sort of tumor, abscess, or other injury. I would definitely post about her in the Emergencies section of the forums.

    You start it same as you did here. I think you can copy and paste your first page?

    So sorry I wish I had an answer. Glad you joined us and wish your chicken the best.

    I hope the ER people will be able to give you advice on her problem. If necessary would you have a vet to take her too, if she needs it removed?
