I have 2 hens that have bumblefoot. I didnt know what it was, or anything about it, till researching, and I came across the pics on here of how to treat it. In the photos there were no gloves used or anything, so I did as the photos, and directions said. I did not realize till later that its a staph infection. My hen splashed me with the water I was soaking her foot in, and a little went into the corner of my eye. Has anyone gotten a staph infection from their chicken while treating? If Id have known, Id have had gloves, and goggles on. I put a call into my dr. waiting for a response, but Im a little worried...its my eye! Anyone have any input, or experiences?
