My silkie rooster is limping on his right foot. We caught him today and looked at it. I can't see anything that resembles bumble foot on here but his feet are black (being a black silkie). It does have a hard area in the center of the foot and the other foot is flat in the same area. I just hate to see the poor thing limping all of the time. Any advice would certainly help. I don't have another cage to put him in to "rest" his foot as we also have a broody hen sitting on an egg at the moment...... If it is bumble foot what happens if it is not treated right away? Thanks!
