Two of my spoiled rotten hens have been acting a little less than stellar the last few weeks. First it was one, now a second. I had a post on here yesterday about it with pulling feathers out on their necks, etc. So i flipped my hen over to look at her last night and noticed her foot. It had a 'callus looking thing on it. on the main pad of her foot. Sure enough there is one on the other foot as well. it was small enough I was able to pick it off of her one foot. Looked like it was a scab, and that it was almost open underneath the skin. I soaked the other one and picked it off. Looked like a little puss under it. Not cheesy, runny. I soaked, neosporined and coverd it with cloth bandaids. Went to check the other hens for giggles, and yup. I have 4 hens total out of 8 that have these 'callus's on their feet. two really small ones that when i soaked in epsome salt water were only superficial looked like and were only on one foot, and two that were pretty deep. I was not able to get anything out of them at all. Didnt really look like anything was there. No heat, no swelling either. I did pick them off and neosporing and bandaid them all anyway. Hope it was the right thing to do. I checked them and rebandaged them this morning. When I looked all were clean and soft, no openings - could see where the scab thing was, but no opening, no heat, not red, etc. So i re-neosporined, bandaided etc. Does this sound like early bumble? They have been walking across a lot of pine cones a lot. And their roost is breast high. Wondering if they are bruised and callused/scabbed from that??? Suggestions PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
