    I have a 1 and a half year old EE hen who kind of shys away from all of the other hens. She has always done that though. So 2 days ago, my mom noticed that her feet looked a little swollen, we checked and aren't sure if it is bumblefoot, so we wanted to check on here. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

  3. Well they really look like the typical dinosaur chicken feet to me. I would check for worms, mites or lice.

    Chickens that do not look good, usually do have problem.

    Try giving her a nice warm foot bath to get all the dust and dirt off her feet....that will help you to see if there is any true discoloration or infection in the foot.

    Is she laying ok?

    Quote:This is good advice. In the first pix it looks like her right foot is swollen, pinker and has that black spot in the middle of the pad. But not so in the other pix.

    Compared to my EE yours does seem to have swollen feet, but EE means mixed breed, so that's not much to go on.

    Quote:We seperated her from the rest of the hens (we have a lot so I don't know if she is laying good or not) so that we can watch her and care for her. I washed off her feet last night in a warm soak, but they look the same as in the pictures.
