    At the moment I am battling two problems. On my leghorn hen there is a burn like, swollen sore on her foot. One foot has a little problem but the other is more swollen. We have been wrapping it after betadine solution bath.

    My silkie hen who cost $60 has two big lumps which we think maybe ringworms. We don't know what they are so we need some advice.

    The first picture looks like bumble foot. I don't know about the second one, I've never seen it before.

    This is the best variety of different ways to go about treating the foot. A simple search will give you more information then you ever want to know about this problem but these 3 are the most referenced to in other posts.
