    I have a hen with what I now think is Bumblefoot...since I did some quick reading today...

    she has been limping for several days, I cannot see anything wrong with her foot or leg...she eats, free ranges, lays eggs and does everything
    normally, except walk!

    Today we brought her in and cleaned her foot with warm water and looked again...a tiny spot that could be bumblefoot.

    Has anyone here treated a chicken with this? If so what did you do exactly?
    Thanks!

    its a barely noticeable spot...tiny, but not like her other foot.
