Hi, I have been researching bumblefoot for a few days now. Everywhere I look online, it says to cut around the scab and pull/squeeze out the "kernal". As a last minute try to get someone experienced to do it, I asked the wild bird sanctuary lady in my town about it. She has had hundreds or thousands of chickens there. She said NO! NEVER cut open the bird's foot for bumblefoot, just soak in epsom salt, put preperation H and DMSO(horse linament?) on it, and keep it wraped and clean. So......... should I cut open my chicken's foot, or Prep H and wrap? It's a "medium sized" swelling, and the scab came off cleanly after 15 - 20 minutes of soaking. My rooster does not seem to be limping since the scab came off.
