    I found bumble foot on one of my hens. it is a small scab like thing, and her foot seems a bit swollen.

    I have never had this before, and was wondering if I could cure it without a antibiotic?

    I have been soaking it in salty water and dressing it with gaze and a wrap.

    Also I am going to put Povidone-Iodine solution on it. do youi think it will heal it?

    anything else I should know? or do???

    I suggest you type "tricide neo" in the BYC search box and read up on it.
