    I just noticed that my chick has a little lump on the top of his/her foot and I tried to search and see what it was, is it bumblefoot? Or not... I have pictures but they aren’t really that good

    It doesn't look like bumble. But it could of scratched it on something. Take and clean the area with some peroxide and use some triple antibiotic on it keep it clean and watch to make sure it doesn't get worse. Also it's a little pricey but vetricin spray that stuff is awesome keep that put up in case of other kinds of wounds. Keep me posted on how things go.

    I would recommend cleaning it with hibiclens or betadine then applying triple antibiotic without pain relief. You can do an warm to wrist Epsom salt soakin a shallow dish pan for 10-15 minutes too.

    Hydrogen Peroxide is only to use once if you don't have anything else, but it will kill off the skin it comes into contact with too.
