    I have a ex bat who is now about 5 years old, she is blind in one eye and has only half a beak and is picked on by the others so we feed and water her seperately. About 3 months ago, we noticed she was limping and . my mum knocked off, what appeared to be a massive clump of mud off her foot. Turned out it wasn't mud is was a massive scab and she had what i can only described as a massive hole in her leg. We cleaned and sprayed it with that anticeptic purple spray ( can't remember the name ) but it's still infected and hasn't healed. We soak it in Iodene every morning and spray it with anticeptic but towards the end of the day it start smelling again, she is currently on antibiotics but they don't seem to be making any difference, any suggestions to what we do next would be appreciated
