My rooster's feet have always been perfect - gold and tight scales - no problems whatsoever. Yesterday I was flabbergasted at the change in his feet. They were oozing a small drop of blood at the root of a few of the feathers and all along the line of his foot feathers on each toe, and between his toes it was a bright, inflamed looking pink. There is some swelling around little bumps between the feathers. I mixed some peroxide with water and bathed his feet (he didn't like it) and then after drying, put some neosporin all along the sides of his toes where it looked inflamed. Lately we have had a lot of rain here, but the chicken pen is on a hill and drains well, and there is grass still covering the pecking pen. The only time he walks in wet dirt, mixed with some poo, of course, from roosting, is when he goes inside his fenced pen for water, or wants to get on his roost, so he does not walk in mud all day, though the grass is always wet due to so much rain. Could this be some kind of fungus??? He is almost 8 months old, and other than this sudden problem with his feet, he seem to be perfectly healthy. There are no mites or bugs under his wings. I will try to post the photo now. Please help me, if you know what this could be! Thank you.
