I am still fairly new in chicken world, okay I only have two now. I've had Gloria for 17 mos and Sheriff is only 4 mos old. This evening I have spent hours reading pages and pages of past topics. I am really happy I did, I found it extremely informative. Quite a bit more than any book I've read. I have, through all this reading, discovered to my dismay that my Gloria has bumblefoot. She has had it for quit some time. At first when I discovered she had a swollen foot I saw there appeared to be a scab on the bottom of her foot. I soaked her foot in warm water and removed the scab and put an antibiotic on it and kept her in the house for a few days. I did not, I'm sorry to say, follow through with any more treatments. It looked fine at that time when I put her back outside. I now have discovered that she has a very large growth between her toes. So I would like to thank everyone who posted treatments for bumblefoot. I will get all the necessary medications tomorrow and start treatment again. Hopefully I will be able to get this under control without further complications.
