    How long do they stay on? I've been treating the grossness known as bumble foot since just before Memorial Day. Washing, soaking, sometimes draining chicken feet. All my girls look better, feet are not swollen anymore and the wounds look healthy. The scabs are a nice shade of dark pink vs. black, and much smaller. How much longer can I expect them to hang around? I've dropped treatments to every other day, and everyone seems fine. Do I need to still do it every day?

    (and yes, I'm a nutty chicken lady for doing this for so long! [​IMG])
