Can it be on a chickens toe and not the pad? I have a hen who walks and runs (very determind hen who gets out). She eats drinks and acts completely normal. I have posted before about a scab on her foot. It hasnt got any worse but it also isnt any better at this point. I really prefer not doing surgry. I am pregnant so it alot more of a risk if i can get the infection from her. My husband would not be able to do it. So yeah if it isnt bumblefoot could it just be a scab or discoloration in her foot now. I know at one poijt she had a cut on that toe, not were the scab is so i am kinda wonder if it was just because of the way it healed that it looks different then her other foot. There is no heat in it or redness. So i am just confused at this point.
