Light Brahma 6 months acting lazy, I soaked her feet in Epson salts.
Does she walk normally, and what type of bedding is she on? Her feet look infected like she has a bacterial infection, similar to bumblefoot. Fowl pox sometimes affects the feet causing lesions (see picture below,) and Mareks disease sometimes causes skin lesions. Here is a link to read about bacterial infections of the feet and legs:
Walks normal. The spots are not soft or different texture than her other knuckles. We believe we have lost 2 birds to Mareks. I sent in to state to have tested and have heard nothing back, Its been 3 months.
Call in and let them know..
One of the 4 types of Mareks is the cutaneous type that affects the skin, causing tumors. I would call your state vet Monday, since they should have gotten back to you long ago. Most people get a preliminary report within a week or two, plus a final report. Many times they can't positively identify Mareks without extra testing and $$$. Here is a link to your state vet: http://www.usaha.org/Portals/6/StateAnimalHealthOfficials.pdf
Help any more ideas? Spots don't seem sore or lesions like.
She also has bump next to eye???
