    I just recently found out one of my GLWs had a green spot on her foot. I haven't been able to find anything on the internet that tells me what it is. She doesn't walk funny (her foot in the second photo is only like that because she's death gripping a flat surface), just has this spot on her. I'm worried it's an infection.

    Any ideas on what happened to her? And what should I do?

    This is not to say that it isn't an infection, since I don't know, but chickens do bruise green.

    Could be a puncture wound/scrape of some sort. It doesn't look infected as of right now, at least going by the photos. Keep in mind, too, that bruises in chickens are green.
