    Our Silver laced wyandotte roo, "Jethro, has a limp. It has been very wet here. Here are pics of his feet. The limp is primarily on the right leg but both seem to look swollen. Is this bumblefoot?[​IMG]

    Are there any black scabs on his foot pads? The redness and swelling could be a sign of bacterial arthritis, such as mycoplasma synovitis, staph infection, or others. But you may also see it with untreated bumblefoot, if there are scabs on the bottom of the feet. Can you get a picture of foot pads?
