    Hi everyone!
    I have 2 hens that have developed curious lumps on their legs. My Wellie is being treated for bumblefoot, but other than that, they are both fine and healthy. So when I found these bumps on their leg scales, I took pics. I can't find anything except bcuz of the location on the leg, I'm thinking maybe they are beginning to get spurs. Any other thoughts?
