After paying little attention to my flock over the past few months- I have discovered that one of my hens has a NASTY infection on her leg. When I say nasty... I mean it is swollen, red, smelly, brown & icky!!! Question: I discovered a blister on her breast as well. I think this could be caused by her leaning on the roost awkwardly due to the bad leg? I don't know what the cause of infection is. I have had a long recurring issue with scaly leg mites- thought it was looking good over the summer months. Some of my birds seem to have swollen feet. I am reading about bumblefoot, gout, etc. I have soaked the infected foot in warm epsom salt water, and coated with an ointment. Tomorrow I am cleaning the coop, and will do another foot treatment... we'll go from there.
