Yesterday, one of the hens decided to "help me" in the garden. As I planted things, she'd try to pull them out of the ground. Such a good helper... As I went to pick her up and put her somewhere else, I noticed an odd growth on the top of her foot, between two toes. I don't have any pics right now (will try to take some today after work), but I took a quick look at her feet. I don't remember seeing an abscess or any sort of weirdness on the bottom of her feet like typically gets mentioned in posts about bumblefoot. She's not limping and the foot isn't swollen. So far, she's just her normal self and happens to have an odd growth there. The growth itself was "fleshy" feeling -- not hard. As far as looks go, it reminded me of a fat grubworm but about half as long. It was a fairly pale color with a small circle of darker color at the end (didn't seem quite like a scab, though). I know, I know... I need to post pictures. But has anyone run into this before? At least if I have some options other than bumblefoot, I can do some searches and see if it looks similar. I've been trying to track down a vet who handles poultry, but not having much luck. I live between a fairly rural area and an urban city. The city vets don't really deal with poultry and the rural folks probably just cull sick birds and move on.
