So, I'm like 90% sure my chicken, Rocky, has bumblefoot. Her feet are very swollen on the pads, and have a blackish circle on each of them. Anyway, I was wondering what the most non-invasive treatment was for that. Like, is there any way to treat it, except by draining the pus? Thanks!

Surgery is probably quickest, and least time consuming than soaking or using TriCide Neo. Antibiotics may be used by a vet, but may still require surgery. There are many posts about bumblefoot treatment by doing a serach on BYC. I only do surgery or treatment if the chicken limps or the bumblefoot lesion is swollen. Here are some links to read with videos:
