    Hey there,
    My rooster, Mick, has a funky foot issue going on. His entire toe is stiff, swollen and sore. He limps and has been standing on one foot. The swelling is particularly noticeable around toenail. It''s very bulbus.There is blood seeping from beneath the skins, where it mets the toenail.

    Possibly an infection similar to bumble foot, and is spreading up the toe. Sorry i don't have experience with such matters hopefully someone will chime in for you soon...

    But untill someone does isolate him and soak his foot in Epsom water. Try to get a picture of the underside particularly where it's bleeding from

    Hi,
    He is isolated in the chicken ER. I soaked his foot, cleaned it and spritzed it vetricyn (or however you spell it.)

    I looked at the bottom of his last night and it's clear - no wound, no scab, nada. That's why I thought broken toe, but you're probably right - infection of some sort.

    I'll get a photo tonight after work. Maybe I'm missing something.

    I did email photos to my vet. Waiting to for her reply.

    Thank you for your thoughts, SAWilliams.
