    I'm a first time chicken keeper and have 5 Australop bantams I've noticed one is limping and the affected foot has a pale patch on it - any suggestions

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! I agree that it could be bumble foot. Would be able to post a pic in the emergencies injuries disease and cure section? Picture really help to give an idea of what is going on. Here is the link for the above forum section ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow
