Hows his foot look today? and I love those blue feathers. growing up.
It's still really puffy
Nothing I know of has been said about the current state of the "hole". Are you packing it with triple antibiotic ointment (no pain relief) between soakings? Is there a dressing?

Hydrogen peroxide should only be used once for initial cleaning of the wound because it can hurt new skin.

I'm not sure how you going to get it out though with out digging That will not be easy. . Then you can pack with ointment and wrap till next day and see if that does any good.
Oh ok. I've been soaking his feet 2-3 times a day. Is that to much? I would have to change the bandages a lot.
