    Hello,

    Without a picture it is difficult to say...

    Chickens can develop a number of issues with their feet which are caused by a number of environmental variables. For example, your roaster could have got a small cut on his foot which developed this lump while healing. Furthermore, in wet conditions chickens can develop numerous conditions which are almost always difficult to resolve.

    I would suggest you get a picture of it and add it to this post...that way you can get the most accurate description of what is going on...

    Hello,

    From the picture I wouldn't be able to give you any clear answer as to what is happening. I would suggest you look very closely at the bump and the area around it. It is possible this bird simply stepped on or cut their foot. As of right now, you just want to make sure it doesn't get any worse or progress to any other areas...
