Welcome to BYC! Is your chicken limping?
I’m not really sure, I got them from a breeder and immediately noticed when she got here that her toe was swollen and it had folded under her foot. Nothing was wrong prior to shipping, I was shown the feet. I disinfected the toe and put it in a splint but I have no idea what’s causing this and want to treat it properly. Idk if it’s an infection, if the feathers are causing it or if it’s broken

It does kind of look like toe bumble. Is a vet an option?
It’s extremely expensive to go through a vet around here so vet would have to be last resort sadly. It’s almost $150 just for consult not including any treatment or the actual tests or anything

Okay, I understand. Can you take a video of it walking, upload to youtube or vimeo, then copy/paste the link here?
I did not have time to get video of her walking but I have more pics
