Bumble foot???

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out if my chicken has bumble foot... As you can see in the picture she has a brown scab in the middle of her foot that wouldn't come off when I rubbed at it with damp paper towel. I've never had a chicken with bumble foot so I don't know what to look for. She hasn't been limping and I only noticed it when I was inspecting her feet. Thanks for any advice![​IMG]

    Looks like it could've been bumblefoot. I only do surgery on mine if their foot swells, they are limping, or showing any other signs.
