    Hi every one my name is duddlebug33,

    I was wondering if their was anybody out their that could help me. I am new at raising chickens and i went out to the chicken pen the other day and found that 2 of my chickens had what looked to be large boils on their feet and when i took a closer look at one of them it looked like they had worms in side of the boil. what could this be. Can all of my chickens get this and how do i treat this. i have seperated them into another area for now. PLEASE HELP ME?

    Wish I could help, but maybe try posting your chickens problem in the disease and emerg section. You also could try the search function. Good luck

    Glad to have you here! [​IMG]

    I agree, start a thread in the Emergencies section. I think people would like to know if their run/coop is mostly wet or dry, and also see some pictures of the feet if possible.
