    i have a SLW named glow today i was watching her walk and noticed she was walking just a lil bit funny like an old man with a leg problem so i checked on the bottom of her right foot and seen dark black scab on bottom of her foot never noticed it before i just got her about a month ago never thought about checking her foot for problems cuz im still new to the chicken thing and i never really watched her walk around the closely cuz all chickens want my attention. so should i be worried that she has Bumblefoot or she used to have it or is it nothing? shes only one gots it my older girls that i got in march dont have nothing like that and i do keep my coop and run as clean as posible im racking up poop everytime i go out there everyday

    I have 4 out of a total of 6 chickens that have bumblefoot, but on 3 of the chickens, the scabs are getting smaller and in some cases, falling off on their own. Why is this? Is it normal/ok?[​IMG]
