    As a novice chicken raiser should I not attempt lancing at home? Recommend vet?

    Thank you

    I have a chicken that has a blister on the top of her foot! I'm not sure what to do about it but it doesn't appear to be bumble foot. It looks clear no black dot.

    it is bumble foot, that has progressed between her toes.
    Start from the bottom of her foot by soaking; cutting and squeezing
    to pop out the kernel...the core of infection.

    there are numerous threads with photos on how to deal with this
    problem. I'm dealing with it now- takes along time to get rid of it.
