    We just got a silkie hen, I was giving them a bath and I noticed on the bottom of her feet it looked like one of her toes had been sliced in half...and there is a few sores on the bottom of her feet.

    Yesterday I soaked her feet and was able to scrape the scab off the bottom. I cleaned the opening with betadine and put triple antibiotic placed a gauze and vet wrapped it. The concern today is that there is still a raised bump.
