    Hello! I just noticed one on my Leghorns Opal has bumble foot? Attached are photos. It's just a hard ball. What should I do?

    Soak the foot in warm water first may have to do it a few times you want to pry off the scab

    There is goop under the scab you need to clean out then do you have a large dog crate
    a place to keep the bird that will be clean and dry

    I do not, but I will see what I can do. How long will I need to keep her separated?

    Till it heals if you have the dog crate she can be around the others just not out if you wrap it and watch like with Vet wrap you can let her out but watch she will find a way to dump the bandage make sure there is allot neosporin in it
