    It's not a feed issue. It appears his face and wattles are ate up with favus. Favus is avian ringworm. Ongoing use of miconazole will clear up favus in time. Monostat 7 contains miconazole. Wear disposable gloves when applying the miconazole cream.

    It is an antifungal cream commonly used to treat skin fungal infections, as well as yeast infections. It is sold both in the first aid aisle as miconazole, and in the women's personal care products at stores such as WalMart.

    Try the ointment like they both instructed :) they know what they are talking about . You can give him vitamins from feed store for poultry add to water to help boost immune system or Apple vinegar cider . And try a wet cat food ( high protein ) to coax him to eat . Mix with his pellets as he starts eating . They need water so you may need to use a dropper slowly and carefully . But do not put down center it throat where he breaths.
    Good luck!! But stop at Walmart grab that ointment it's under 9. Dollars and treat him he must be uncomfortable

    I think you can give up to 250 or 300mg a day (in 2 or 3 divided doses) of amoxicillin to most chickens. Epsom salt soaks daily are good for bumblefoot, but please keep him warm and dry afterwards. Here are some good links to click on regarding bumblefoot and surgery:
