    Hi I just noticed one of my chickens has a problem with her foot. Attached will be her foot. I don't want to put her down but if it isn't solvable I will. I appreciate any help given.

    Welcome to BYC!

    Can you look at the bottom of her foot for any signs of Bumblefoot(Black hard core) or any swelling.It may be a sprain which can be treated by giving the bird a Epsom salt bath and giving 81mg baby aspirin a day.
