I have two white leg horns, who I found with scabs on the pads of their feet. No swelling, but the scabs were just slightly smaller than a dime. I did the surgery to try and get rid of the infection as quickly as possible, but there wasn't a "kernal" attatched to the scabs. The scabs were kinda thick, but I really don't know if I got the infection out. I cleaned, treated and bandaged them up. They dont limp or anything either. I'll try to get some pics tomorrow, but does anyone have any advice?
