    What would happen to chickens foot if you dont treat bumblefoot?
    If after you remove it and dont get all of it, will it return? Once you do the surgery on the chickens foot, about how long until their foot heals that you can remove the wrapping?

    Quote:Bumblefoot is a staph infection and if you don't get it all out iw will come back. And it wont go away unless you get it out. I have had to keep bandage on for up to 1 month after surgery.

    Good luck

    Oh and sorry but it can eventually kill the chicken.

    Thanks for the info. Im glad I decided on the surgery today. I had to do two chickens. The one we got it all out but the second one, Im not sure if we got the whole thing. I guess time will tell.[​IMG]

    Quote:I went back into the foot several times and on one it was rough so I had to squeeze on the foot to get it out. You have to be vigorous and go at it 100%, which it sounds like you did.

    I wish you luck
