My sweet Henrietta (a buff cochin with a beautiful fluffy butt) has a small black scab on her foot. I think it's the beginning of bumble foot. There is no swelling or heat or redness. Question is this....Should I go ahead and take care of it (feels like theres a small core under the scab too)? I feel comfortable doing it myself. Should I wait until she's showing signs of pain? There's no doubt it's bumble foot, I think I just caught it early. I don't want her to go through anything painful (who would?). My gut says to go ahead and take it out, just want to make sure from the experts here. Thanks guys!!
