Hi there, I have 5 18 day old chicks (3 light sussex, 1 australorp and one wyandott/sussex cross) and one of the light sussex's has developed a sore on the dorsum of his (yes - he's going to be a rooster! ) feet. I noticed little scabs over slightly raised, hardened tissue two days ago. One looks like it may have pus under the scab. The little guy also has what looks like a blood blister on his hock which has been there pretty much since birth. They are hand reared and are in a very clean and dry environment. I tried a condy's crystal solution (only good for fungal infections though?) 24hrs ago and they seem a little drier. Is there anyone who has seen the same thing or who can offer a treatment plan for him? It's odd because the sores are in the same spot on each of his feet. I haven't seen anyone pecking at him and otherwise he seems to be a very happy and healthy little fella! I'm thinking maybe staph? Has anyone tried a dilute 3% hydrogen peroxide solution for wounds?
