Hi you guys! I'm new to the forum but already have a concern. My little girl is a pekin that's about 4 months old and I'm worried about her feet. She is outside during the day but I bring her in at night. I just noticed these on her feet today but I haven't really looked at her feet since the first week of May. I understand that bumble are hard once the bacteria grows but the sores are not hard (at least not yet). Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Yep it's bumblefoot I had a hen who had bumble foot and we had to dig in her foot to get the stuff out
If you catch it early shouldn't have to dig.
Just soak in Epsom salt water [warm] then spread colorless iodine over the bumbles. Keep this up till your able to gently remove the scabs. Once scabs are off the bumble should come out with sterile tweezers. Then keep up the soaks and iodine till healed. Or soaks and pack with antibiotic ointment

Also, I got her some shoes, should I keep them on her at all times or just while her feet are healing? Can I get colorless iodine at like Tractor Supply or would I have to go somewhere else?

Is it possible that this is also a bumble?
