This is a picture of my 9-10 week old, Plymouth Barred Rock Rooster, Spike. This "bump" on his foot. His foot just seemed swollen, then the next day he had this beauty on there. When I would feel it, he didn't seem to mind. He didn't try jerking it away from me, or didn't cluck in pain. It doesn't feel squishy enough to be like a blister, but it's not really hard or solid. And I can't really tell if it has "heat" in it. I am use to like with our horses, that if there leg it swollen, or feels like there is heat in the leg, foot, ankle, usually mean there is something wrong. Can someone please tell me whether I should just watch it? Should I try to aspirate it? Or what I should do for it.?.? I'm getting worried because he's starting to become withdrawn. Thank you.
