My 1 year old layers have bumble foot, and some have the bumble foot all over their foot, (up to 3 spots on one foot).

The bumble foot is up to 3cm big, its chronic. but the chicks are walking with no sign of pain.

Some Youtube videos say i should cut, wash and cover the spot.

What should i do?

I have the same issue with my Golden Wyandotte. I noticed her limping and when I checked her legs I noticed one was swollen and she has a dark spot under it. I will try to upload some pictures

Can you post some pictures of the feet? What is the environment like that they are walking and roosting on?

my wyandotte had it and i would take cotton ball soak it with raw honey and place on the bumble and use vetwrap to secure i had to redo every 4 days. It took about a week and half but went away. She was fine however something got her much later. I didn't know it was bumblefoot she limped real bad and I pulled her away from the rest of the flock they were picking on her bad. I loved that girl her name was Ginger
