The black scab is bumblefoot and I need to know how to cure it. I think I am going to:
Soak the feet in water with epsom salts for a couple minutes to make the foot and scab softer(yes ik about not letting the chicken drink the water its sitting in)
Then pull off the cab then clean it out thoroughly with the tweezers removing infected tissue and pus
Rinse out the wound with water
Put neosporin in it
Band-aid it but not to tight so the foot can breathe easy
Will that work?
