I have a large chicken that has been limping for 1.5 weeks. I kept watching for signs of bumble foot, but none. The foot is swollen and red by ankle and hard on pad. Could it be broken and if so what do I do? I don't want to lose her and there are no vets here that take care of chickens.

Find out where the closest vet is that works with chickens and take the time to drive there, i promise there is something bad going on with her foot. Inspect it for bites if she is a free range chicken (snake bites maybe) but there is a pretty bad chance that she will die. im sorry but that just sounds terrible.
