In the Brooder
- Oct 12, 2018
My chicken (unknown-mixed breed) that I recently rescued has always appeared in perfect health but this morning she started limping. She still has her appetite and she’s still sassy as ever, I thought she might have Bumblefoot and looked for all the tale-tell signs and didn’t see anything after doing a quick google search it seemed she may have just jumped from a high roost and fallen wrong and hurt her leg that way. I soaked her in Epsom salt just to where the feathers met her leg. Afterwards as I was looking her over again I found this, I have no idea what it is. I immediately gave her a small dosage of an antibiotic and put an antibacterial ointment made for chickens on it, it still looks like this. Can anybody help me??? It’s hard as a rock.
