Hi all! I noticed that my hen had a swollen foot and was beginning to limp. Checked her feet and noticed the black scab typical of bumble foot. So proceeded to attempt treatment. Cut off scab, squeezed and sprayed with vetricyn. Then wrapped with bet wrap. Didn't get a kernel out. Didn't know how far to cut so thought we'd see if what we'd done would work. She was still sore on that foot and would only walk quickly on her feet while assisting with flapping her wings. It has been 6 days now. She has not been able to walk at all for the last 3 days. She lays on her side with her legs out. Sometimes her legs appear to be shaking. She is eating and drinking well. And is bright eyed. We have to bring food and water to her as she cannot stand. If we hold her up, she falls over she tries to move around by scooting on her bum or basically flopping around. She often sits on her haunches with her legs out front. Don't know if we didn't treat the bumble foot enough...and perhaps the staph has spread?? Or if she has something else? I wouldn't know what it would look like if the staph has reached her leg bone (which all I've read basically means that she's run out of luck at that point). The fact that she drinking and eating and accepting treats readily suggest that she's still feeling alright...she's just not walking???? I did notice that the scales on her 'good' leg seemed to be separated a little right at the ankle... Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
