    My Polish chick started limping on Friday and her foot is swollen. It's swollen between her toes. There is no black dots or broken skin anywhere. I'm not sure what to do because she can hardly walk on it.

    I soaked it in epsoms salt and made a bootie from nonstick bandage. I also put neosporin on it, but I don't think it will do much if there isn't a scab or something. He toes don't seem broke. I just don't know...please help!!

    I forgot to mention that it's hot to the touch.
