    I just found a red bump in between my chickens toes. It is about the size of a skittle. She is not limping or anything she is walking normal. I just switched her bedding from hay to pine shavings. Could that be the reason for it; could it be irritating her foot? If not, then what is it?, how did it get there? ,and how can I get rid of it?

    Thank you [​IMG]

    Did you examine the bottom of the foot? If you could post a pic of top and bottom of the area, you should get some opinions on what the lump is. But IMO I doubt the bedding change caused it.
