I posted a couple of days ago to ask what was going on with one of the hens. I've followed the tutorials of how to soak the foot, remove the scab, pull the plug. I removed 3 good size pieces of puss day before yesterday. Applied polysporin antibiotic cream, wrapped the foot in vetwrap, and have kept her inside on soft clean bedding, having changed the bandage daily. Tonight when I looked at the foot it looks worse to me. Areas that were not red before are red now. The swelling seems to be less, but the redness is moving up her leg, which I am sure is not good. What now?
