    Hi! I am very new to chickens. I just adopted 6 from someone last weekend and I am concerned about a couple. Two of them have what I think may be bumblefoot but I am not sure. They were very dirty on the hind end too. I tried to wash them and one of them has very red skin around the vent and tail. I was able to take a picture of their feet.[​IMG]

    One is on the bottom of the foot the other is on the toe.
