    Here is a photo of my silkie hen who appeares to have some sort of scab on her foot. Is this bumblefoot? Please help! [​IMG]
    How much does bumblefoot cost to remove? Thanks

    It could be but I think it's not bumble foot and the cost at my vet was $40.

    One of our Hamburg hens had something like this on the bottom of her foot, a hard black scab. I thought it might be bumblefoot, so we scraped the scab off to see what was going on and a huge cactus needle popped out with a bunch of yucky stuff. I cleaned it really well and bandaged it. Checked it every day for a few days, but it healed nicely.
