yes, I will post a picture when I get hold of her again, but just starting this thread off in the meantime. We have a little old hen, 8 years old, who's been limping and shaking her foot. Her limp was very bad yesterday, but today it was not so bad. I caught her and looked at her foot. She has a tiny black dot on the bottom, with a small lump, and it had like dry skin, or an old scar, over the top. I brushed off the dry skin so I could get a better look, and she acted like it was touchy, but it is not red or inflamed, and there's no sign of infection I can really see. I can catch her again, but she just detests being handled or confined for any reason, and I know she will be miserable in captivity. I also think she may have a little heart condition, doesn't seem to be bad, she's had it for a while, but I'm reluctant to stress her out because of that. But does this sound like bumblefoot? Her foot looks perfectly normal except for the little place on the bottom. Should I start soaking it and treating it even though it doesn't seem to be bad, or should I take a chance on it resolving itself? I've only treated one other case of what seemed to be Bumblefoot, that was a long time ago and I don't remember what the symptoms were or how it resolved.
