    My heavier birds (Brahma, Australorps, Sexlinks) They all have large pads as I say...
    Seems like the bigger the bird, the more squish they have...which makes sense.
    Hopefully this helps?
    I didn't see anything that looked out of the ordinary.

    I am no expert, but are those black scabs on the swelling? Couple of my gals had that and it was bumble foot. I didn't catch mine in time as she had swelling between the toes. I ended up taking her to a terrific vet and he took care of it.

    You may want to soak her foot in epsom salts and see how she does for a week. My gal is a Gold Laced Wyandotte and is now prone to have bumble foot. She gets it every so often.

    Hopefully it is nothing serious though.

    Bumble foot - Tricide Neo is what I used and took care of it. Mine were not bad cases...looked about like your last picture.
