    I have a chicken that I believe is developing bumblefoot. I know this is caused by a bacterial infection. I was wondering if this would effect her eggs?

    It shouldn't effect her eggs the infection is external not internal.So her eggs are completely fine to eat :)

    I think that its fine to eat the eggs, as long as you aren't treating her with any antibiotics.

    First time Chicken family: How can you be sure its bumble foot? My one chicken go lame both feet and never saw any bump on the bottom of her feet. she is still having a hard time walking but goes up and down the stairs. another chicken is limping, a small bump, no pus expressed out when I tried to aspirate it.?? Any clues to help me. the first chick I think was recently "pecked" by others she developed a sore under one or her wings. I used the antibiotic spray. She is still laying eggs any problem with the eggs? The appear fine when opening ond no odor.
