  5. Hello:

    My, My now tha is unusua !! You probably have not gotten any replies because this one is a first at least for me.
    I am ONLY guessing that this is a bad case of what is called "bumble foot".
    It requires one to lance the foot and keep the fowl in confinement for a good time.
    Please read up on this and PLEASE any one out there who has seen this PLEASE reply here !!

    Did you ever figure out what it was? I have 5 guineas and several of them have a toe or two like this. Only one seems to limp a bit but I don't think it's because of the toes. Really hoping to hear what if anything you found out and what you did for your bird.

    I hope to hear back from you!!

    Thank you,
    Erica
