    Just found these sore on the foot of my freerange hen
    She had one on each foot same place.
    It seams dry and not wet or infected.
    I noticed them because she was lifting her foot and pecking at it .

    What is this ?

    Looks like bumblefoot.

    Its bumblefoot, a staff infection, and that plug will have to be removed. There are many threads on how to treat it here and one is by ruth with good pictures.

    Thanks everyone for your prompt replies.
    I have had the vet look at her and of course we are treating her for bumblefoot.
    Thanks for you help
