    Maybe it stepped on a bee. I'm new to chicken raising, I really dont know much about illness and injuries. I just really roll with it. If I have a problem I will usually do a google search on it.
    I looked at a couple sites most say its most likely dermatitis. but i'm no experpert. Sorry I wasnt to big of a help.
    But welcome

    Can you post a picture of her foot?

    Do you think she may have injured it? Is there an odor? Run a search for bumblefoot and see if that looks like what she has.
