    I have RI Red crosses and noticed today that one of the 'girls' has a cyst thingey on the webbing between her toes on the top of her foot. She is ~8-9 months old, and is limping a bit. I have looked at the bottom of her foot and it appears somewhat swollen, but I can't find any kind of break in the skin. I was going to include a pic in this post, but being a 'newbie' I can't. If anyone can help, I would be glad to email the pic

    Oh goody, goody, goody! [​IMG] I've done minor surgery on bunnies, cats and dogs, but this will be my first chicken. Too late to start this evening, but I guess my schedule for tomorrow will include hen surgery.

    Thanks to all for the help in diagnosis.
