    I have a 6 w/o ameraucana chick with strange lesions on the bottoms of her feet. There is no swelling, no heat, no redness. She's eating, drinking, and playing normally. It's not on the balls of her feet, it's on her toes and they're almost like dark brown cysts. I've washed her feet well, and was able to get a few to come off. They seem to have roots and no pus. I'd love any ideas of what it might be.

    Thanks,
    Sonja

    Here's a picture.

    It's the small brownish dot on her first toe.

    That's what I'm afraid of, but I haven't seen any pics that looks like this.

    I am not sure if chickens can get warts like we go. But I would keep her isolated from the other and keep her feet really clean.

    Hooray!! She's on the mend. I've been putting neosporin on her feet, and the problem is almost cleared up. I'm not sure what she had on her feet, but it's clearing up nicely.
