One of our Welsummer hens had the dark scab on the big pad of her foot. I had to keep her calm and too hot for a towel over her. I used a toilet paper roll, cut a "v" in one end so it fit over her head the v cut just under her wattles. It allowed her to breathe and dark to calm her down. I tried it on our big BO roo with some more cutting to make it fit over his head, comb and up to his wattles. Worked great for him too being hooded this way. I cleaned up her foot with an old toothbrush and antibacterial soap. Then removing the core from the hens foot went quickly, used cleaned exacto knife to remove it. After care washed out again applied neosporin a small cut down gauze pad to keep it in place wrapped up with vet wrap. I was very happy using the toilet paper roll for a hood she was able to breathe and it amplified her breath sounds so I could tell if she was in any distress. It was just dark enough that she stayed quiet and didn't move while treating her Bumble foot. She didn't toss it off like a towel. I checked her foot yesterday 3 days from the removal and healing fine now is just wearing a vet wrap sandal to keep it clean for a day or three longer. A toilet paper roll an easy hood to make for a chicken!
