First I'd like to thank Dawg - he helped me figure out a plan of action even if it was mostly me doing the talking - ... I'm not looking forward to the time it's going to take, but I hope that this will banish this from my coop forever ! anyway, long story short - I found that my roost has caused bumblefoot in 9 of my hens (the only ones who use the roost) - the rest - who don't use the roost- are free and clear. Roost is comming down tomorrow. Going to CVS on my way home for peroxide, neosporin, gause pads and foot wrap. I have doxicycline and amoxicillin on order and it should be here next week. Not enough amoxicillin to treat whole flock (got it for the one bird that I thought was the only one with it) so will be using doxicycline. (I read on a vet page somewhere that the three antibiotics of choice for bumblefoot were doxicycline at 50-100mg per day, amoxicillin at 250mg per day and something that started with an L ). Plan is : Treat those with the worst cases by soaking in salt water, removing black scab and plug if there - rinsing with peroxide, packing with neosporin and wrapping. Those with very small spots that look to have just started - will leave for time being. Treat entire flock with dose of antiboitic for 7-10 days and let the kids use the eggs for bb gun targets. Follow up with mild cases to see if any action needed. Any suggestions ? Hints ? otherwise ?
