    Hi, I noticed these callus-like marks on 2 of my 4 chickens (on bothe feet) a month ago. They have not gotten any worse and from what I can tell have no effect on the girls. I ordered tricide neo after reading up a bit but would rather not treat them if this is not going to get worse. What do you think?

    That does appear to be bumblefoot. I'd strongly recommend treatment as it does generally get worse once it's started. It's best when done by a vet, but there are lots of guides to home bumblefoot surgery online as well.

    We soak our Henny's feet in water and tea tree oil and then bandage them. She enjoys her spa days
