    I have a young khaki campbell and it's middle toe/pad is swollen. I have looked for a thorn or something in it, but can't find anything... anybody have any suggestions??

    I would look up bumblefoot. All it takes is a little scratch for the foot to get infected.

    Thanks, I was looking at other posts with folks that have bumblefoot... I'll do some more research. I've been soaking its foot in an epsom salt bath, but it may need more.
