    I have a chicken about 6 months old. She is almost fully grown and has a swollen foot. No signs of bumble foot yet, like the tell tale scab, just swollen. I have her separated and am trying to give her water with antibiotic in it. She is NOT happy. She is aggressive when I try to calm her down and won't drink. Anyone have any suggestions? I cannot medicate her with the others because they have started laying. At a loss...
