Bumblefoot--my RIR rooster. Black scabs are huge--the size of the foot pad on each foot. Been soaking in epsom salt and applying collodial silver, then vetwrap wrapping. Here's my question--after a couple of days the scabs are now an amber color, almost like hardened tree sap. After a few days of trying to pull the black scab off by gently using a scalpel around the edges to lift and pull towards the center, I now have a flat hardened scab!! I must tell you I was probably too gentle with the scalpel and didn't cut deep enough... Swelling still on one foot--the other not so much. Scabs on both. Or is it a new pad? Should I assume the plugs are still underneath this new type of scab and keep digging, or should I assume the collodial silver has absorbed the infection underneath. And keep on doing what I am doing? Has anyone else experienced an amber looking scab?
