    Hey everybody one of my RIRs has these two ball looking things between her toes,, to me it looks like an infection with pus, if so is it as simple as poking it with a needle and squeeze it out and put something on it, or something else. She hobbles around now. So hopefully someone can help me.. So I'm not sure that I did this right but the only way I could figure out how to do it was load the picture to my facebook page, hope it works if not sorry.

    It's bumblefoot. You will have to do minor surgery. Type "bumblefoot" into the BYC search box and you'll find everything you need to know on how to remove it.

    Birds don't make liquid pus; it's more like cottage cheese, so it's not as easy as just lancing and draining the abscesses. The links for bumblefoot have some good advice. Good luck!
