    Does this look like bumblefoot? I haven't been able to see the bottom of her foot to check for a scab because she is one of our more skiddish hens, but I noticed the big lump between her toes. It is hard, but I can't tell if it's warm because she had been out in the cold when I checked it. We have a family member who is a nurse coming in the morning to remove it if we need to, so it would be good to know very soon if it is bumble foot and needs to be removed.

    Does it hurt when she walks on it?

    She hasn't started limping fully, but I've noticed that she seems to stand on her other foot a lot of the time. She still walks on it, though.

    If it was a pus filled infection it wouldn't hurt so its probably bumble foot.Good luck[​IMG]
