1) What type of bird , age and weight. - Welsummer cockerel, just over six months. Not sure on weight. 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Eating and drinking okay, walks by lifting legs fairly high. Lays around a lot. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? He lays around a lot, but has done it his whole life. Because he DOES lay around a lot, we just noticed his feet today. I feel like such a horrible owner! We recently rehomed a dominant roo who also would come between us and the cockerel in question, so we really haven't gotten near him until recently. 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? Not at all. 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. Looks like claws are decaying? He was pecking at them earlier. 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. Nothing I'm aware of. I'm not sure when it started. 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Water and Layena. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. All poop looks normal. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Epsom salt soak and covered claws in Blue Kote. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? Looking for a vet that treats chickens. If I can treat myself, I'm all for it. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. Posted below. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use - They're in a coop with heat lamps, although the weather hasn't been below 28. Bedding is pine shavings. One thing about him is he's never roosted. He's always laid on the floor. I attributed this to the other roo. I have found him in the nest box a few times too! If it IS bumblefoot, do I have to worry about my pullets and the staph, or their eggs?
