I just got a new flock of hens and noticed when I got home that one of them probably has bumblefoot.... What do you think?

I am not sure I just use regular Epsom salt, you soak for 10-15 minutes, it will most likely take a few soaks if it is to loosen the scab enough to get it off , they you need a pair of sterilized tweezers to remove the pus as it's more like a hard ball that can be hard to remove, and like neosporin or triple antibiotic cream without pain relief to pack in there
