could it be just healing. ???first discovered ths today when gave Baby Girl a soak in Epsom salt and "Melafix" for her red thighs and partially bare belly.. i had turned her over to be able to spray Rooster Booster wound spray better on her belly and saw the scab... Like I mentioned before she acts 90 instead of 1 and 1/2 yr old .. lost weight too. she usued to be plump... slow to now go .. just looks sick. I am not sure ho much she eats... she wont get in there and peck the others like she used to. for treats or first to eat from a certain dish.... she is or was the dominant hen,,, keeps by herself...I want back my pump Baby Girl.. even though she is not an egg layer.... does bumblefoot ALWAYS swollen and red and hard? hers scab is center pad of foot but not red etc... I called that place that makes those neoprene "booties No one has gotten back with me.. DANG>>>>I wanted to order just in case. and dang if Baby Girrl does have a scab on bottom of her foot.. otherwise How would I keep on a bandage... and keep it clean sine she "free ranges " on 1/2 acre fenced in area... I found a 2' inch vet wrap at TSC tonight otherwise all the rest was 4 inches wide PLEASE advise as I am scared of losing my first GIRL... my Baby Girl.... thanks yall.
