I agree that it doesn't look like bumblefoot, but the swelling is a little suspicious. If it's something you're concerned about I'd suggest cleaning and treating it like a small cut you'd get on yourself. Maybe wrap it if you can just to keep the antibiotics on it and bacteria out, but if not I think it'd be okay. It's probably nothing but it's good to be sure, and maybe prevent bumblefoot from forming. I'd at least keep an eye on it, if it gets any worse then it's probably something to be worried about.

Oh do I just get a towel with warm water and salt and then but antibiotic ointment with some alcohol so it doesnt get worse



don't worry. chickens are tough. just watch it and if you see that it is getting worse ask questions again. I really don't see anything wrong with your chicken. they can survive small cuts.
