    A picture would help. Scaly leg mites can cause peeling raised scales, and is painful. Bumblefoot causes swelling on the bottom or top of the foot, and may have a dark spot on the foot pad. Gout can cause swelling and pain, but may be in both feet. Mycoplasma synoviae may cause pain in the leg and foot.

    You could remove his foot,search forum there are several chicken keepers that have successfully removed a limb where gangrene has set in,all birds are doing very well.
