What is the bumblefoot disease? I really don't know much about it. Is it a threat to the chicken's lives? Is it contagious? Is bublefoot disease like warts? Can you get rid of it with a medicine? Do you have to take the chicken to a vet to have it operated on?

OMG... there are so many viruses my chicken can get. which one is my chicken most likley to get.




P.S. Thankyou soooo much for the list

First off, no need to worry (too much) about it.
Prevalence of any disease can be different depending on your location/conditions. You might want to connect with other locals to see what they find. Then be prepared for the common problems.
Practice good chicken keeping practices,
Keeping the coop/run area as clean as feasible.
Clean fresh food and water, etc.

Imp- Good luck

My chickens have just been diagnosed with MG. I have culled nearly 70 birds and I have about 30 left. Worst thing Ive ever had to do. My best advice that I had received was to kill all and start new.
