My chicken feet have been swollen for the last weeks or 2 and I don’t know what it is
I’ve been soaking her in warm water and Epsom salts and that help bring down the swelling and walk a little easer
I thought it was bumble foot at first but haven’t gotten worse and theres no scab
I’m starting to wonder if it’s arthritis because it’s in both feet and it doesn’t seam like an infection
Any one have any ideas

Also she’s still eating and drinking fine and can still walk although she does limp and stumble
Her feet seam a little tender but not like she’s in a lot of pain
 
Just her feet are swollen although she has always had thicker legs than most of my birds
Also She is a Delaware and nine years old
Not the best picture sorry I’ll try and get better

I’m not as knowledgeable as anyone else, but how is she doing today? Is she eating and drinking fine? Is she acting lethargic?

She still eating and drinking fine and until yesterday she was forging with the other birds
But yesterday when I got home I noticed she was having trouble walking and today she’s staying near the coop cause she doesn’t want to walk
