    It looks like bumble foot. is that on the bottom of the chick's feet?

    I agree that it looks like bumble foot.

    However, there isn't much swelling, so it might clear up just with soaking the feet for several times.

    For bumble foot you should soak it in mineral/epsom salt right?

    Make sure that the chicks’ bedding is dry and clean. It helps to use pine shavings or sand, and keep it stirred daily, adding clean every other day. Straw or hay or newspaper can hold moisture and bumble foot can become severe. I have personally never seen bumblefoot or pododermatitis in small chicks, but it can be common in older birds who suffer small cuts.
