I received an older cockerel a few days ago who arrived with bumblefoot (confirmed by me and another experienced chicken keeper). He came off a farm, so the previous owner cannot tell me exactly how long it's been there for. Suffice to say, looks like it's been a while. To treat, I soaked his foot in warm salt water, at which point some of the scab came off. Then wrapped him up and cut out/pulled out all the black looking flesh that I could see and get to. Cleaned, dried, put Savlon on (antisceptic, active ingredients are cetrimide and chlorhexidine gluconate), bandaged and put him out. He's on clean bedding in the coop and run with a raised mesh floor while he's in quarantine and needs to have dry feet. [Side note: I find raised mesh floor over grass to be quite effective for confinement as the poo drops through the floor and the chickens have their feet always dry. They are, under normal circumstances, free ranging.] The thing is, this does not look like any other case of bumblefoot that I've personally experienced. When I've previously seen cases if it, it's come away as a plug to leave a neat hole in the foot. In this case, it came away more as a scab and I'm not sure if there's any infection still left in the foot. Here is how I left it after cleaning before bandaging: Opinions needed. Did I get everything out? Is it ok to leave him to heal over from that? My plan is to keep changing the dressing and applying Savlon. Before anyone points out the ridiculously long claws and generally icky condition of feet, I'm working on that. He arrived with 1" claws and I trimmed them down already, will do another pass in a week or so. I can't see exactly where the quick ends because they're quite thick and somewhat deformed so taking it slowly and hoping that a better environment will help with the issue as I've never had a problem with any of my lot.
