My new rescued chicken has a swollen back toe. She is walking ok but folds it up a lot while standing. I have been giving her a half of baby aspirin for pain and some antibiotics for about a week but it doesn't seem to be getting better. Please help this poor baby came from horrific factory and I want her to be free of any pain or discomfort.... Thanks!!!!

The spot doesn't look like a scab it looks more like a callus. If she broke it would it swell up like this? I appreciate your help!!! Thank you!

I have a chicken that got her foot caught in chain link fencing (she kept jumping out of her fence) and caught her toenail. It finally fell off after turning blue, and now several months later the toe is slightly swollen, but not nearly as much as your hen's. Let us know if anything changes with it or that you have figured out a cause.
