    Removed Bumblefoot from my hen that had 4 sores on her foot. Used Prid salve for 4 days

    to draw up infection and was able to pull out the infection. [​IMG]

    don't know what bumblefoot is but I'm looking it up now. Hope I don't have to deal with it.

    Hello, I'm so glad you are able to take care of your chicken like that and I'm grateful she's better! I worry that I may have to deal with that someday and will I be able to do it so I check my chickens when I can. I have a question for you.... today I noticed that a few of my pullets have sores from being pecked or scratched, what should I do?
