Three of my hens are exhibiting bumblefoot symptoms. They have hard dark scabs on the bottom of their feet. They don’t seem to be painful. I have been researching causes of bumblefoot and I think my roosts are too high. They are just over 2 feet and 3 feet in a small coop. The hens in question are large girls and I think that the impact of them landing off of the roost is causing too much pressure on the foot pads. I will be lowering the roosts this weekend. I have treated the scabs by soaking the feet with Epsom salts, scrubbing the scabs and pulling off what I can, packing with hen healer and wrapping with vet wrap for 48 hours. My questions are: is this the proper way to non surgically treat the infection? Is there something better to use? Do I need to worry about these scabs if they aren’t causing lameness? I am considering adding impact mats to the floor of the coop in addition to lowering the roosts. Any suggestions would be very helpful as this has been a frustrating problem.
