    One of my pullets has hot and swollen feet. I just noticed today that she also has a swollen spot under her beek. Does anyone know what is happening to her?

    Having a photo will help. Search for bumble foot on BYC and see if any of the photos/descriptions fit. I am certainly too new to be of help, but at least this will provide a bump.

    What about the swollen spot under the hen's beak? Can that be related to the bumble foot or is it something else?

    I never heard of bumble foot affecting anything but the feet... I'm not sure what's going on with the beak [​IMG]

    Yes I did, and I am reading up on it right now. The thing is...... her toes are swollen and not the pads........ and there are NO scab spots on her feet! And it still doesnt explain why she has the spot under her beek!
