    I think that is what might have happened with my roo. The bumble foot site I visited said to soak in Epsom salt water or a diluted betadine which is iodine but red.

    Thanks newfie. I'm going to look at it tomorrow nd make sure that's what it is. I think I'm seeing a little knot on both feet. He jumps down a lot so I'm guessing that's what caused it.

    They say to reduce the height of your roost bars for heavy breed birds because the constant impact of there weight hitting the floor can cause bumble foot. Also to make sure you have a thick layer of bedding on your coop floor to help absorb some of the impact.
