    Hello, I'm new here!
    I noticed a few days ago my one hen was limping, when I examined her foot I noticed a couple sores on it. I cleaned up the wound and bandaged it up. I'm really not sure exactly what the problem is. It doesn't really look like bumblefoot to me. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong and what the remedy is?

    Thank you!

    Greetings from Kansas, rbrady, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our flock! I'm not sure - can you show us a photo of the underside of the foot? That's usually where bumble foot happens. Wonder if it's something as simple as a sliver? You might try posting the photos and symptoms in the Emergencies Forum here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
    Good luck and thanks for joining BYC!

    G’Day from down under rbrady [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I am not sure either but hope that the folks on the ER Forum are able to assist.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
