    Can anyone offer any idea as to what this might be? Is it Bumblefoot? I don't see a defined black spot, and I know it kind of looks like chicken poop stuck between her toes but it's not. She's not acting like it hurts as far as I can tell.

    It could be an abscess or bumblefoot.

    Give her foot a good cleansing in warm soapy water and gently scrub to clean it up. Would be interested to see what it look like then.
