    Is this a bad foot on a silkie, or is it bumble foot?
    Its soft, and her claws curl to the side on this foot, and she walks on the side.
    She doesnt seem to be phased by this at all, and runs with all the other chicks.

    Oh Boy, Kind of hard to tell. I'm thinking bumblefoot, but am not sure.

    Its the side of her one toe, kind like its getting tougher skin there BC she walks on the side of it. I did remove some feathers that looked almost like ingrown hairs...can that happen to silkies?
