So, a few days ago I noticed that my chicken was walking very strangely and decided to see what was going on. I noticed a huge problem. Her left foot is infected, and I don't know if it is a chicken bumble foot or what it is, but it looks very bad.If you know what this is and if you maybe know the cure, message me.The chicken is 2 years old and I don't remember her having any diseases like this.

This is a severe case of bumble-foot with scaly leg mites on top.

The easy way to treat scaly leg mites is using Ballistol spray for 10 consecutive days, spraying every other day..

For bumble foot treatment there are non surgical ways:

And surgical ways:

There are a lot more helpful videos to watch.

Which ever method you decide on, the important thing is to give her foot a good soak with epsom salt first.
