I think you are doing an amazing job. Cillin is a very lucky rooster!I'm struggling with Cillins foot pad.
I got it right yesterday and the white core center was showing this morning. The day before I got it wrong again and the core scabbed over.
I can see that the idea will work, but placement and security of the pad is crucial.
I'm working on it. I had a look this evening and it looks like I got it right this morning.
