Hi,
My big rooster has had a swollen foot for ages, making him limp. Ive given him foot baths with epsolm salts, but it doesn't seem to be working. It is actually swollen the leg up to the knee. Ive attached pics. Please let me know of you think it is mites or bumblefoot. Thanks

Can you take him to a vet?

I agree it looks like he has Bumblefoot. It's hard to tell about the scales, but it won't hurt to slather some oil on the scales after you have soaked his feet.

The whole leg being swollen like that, I would worry that infection has spread, so seeking vet care would be a good idea.

Thx for the replies. I will ring the vets and see if I can get him in soon. I removed 2 small black scabs too.
