In the Brooder
- Nov 21, 2011
We have a chicken that managed to get a 1/2 inch nail in her foot. We didn't catch it at first but removed the nail and treated. Several days later we were pulling off a scab and draining an infection. Now the injury is healed but the foot remains swollen and is getting worse.
On the swollen section when I have circled there is a hard lump in the swelling. Is there a way to treat this without going through the bottom of the foot? Is it even safe to go in the side? Any advice would be very helpful, we don't want to lose the chicken.
