OK, let me try to explain my problem. I have a Bourbon Red Hen that is about 3 years old. She has been a good bird and has had no health problems in the past. About 2 weeks ago I noticed she was limping. When I checked closer, I noticed a type of abscess on one leg below the knee. It appears dry and when I put Hydrogen peroxide on it got no reaction. I wrapped it with and antibiotic ointment and gauze several days ago, but saw no improvement. When I took the wrap off, it still looks the same, there was no sign or smell of rotting or infection, just the dry abscess. She hobbles and is reluctant to put weight on the leg, but can and does when she is chased or cornered. I am at a total loss as to what this can be or how to treat it. I have considered culling her as an excess hen, and while that is still a possibility, I would rather heal her. Any one have any ideas what this is, what caused it or how to effectively treat it? Thanks in advance.
