    She has both feet swollen from the angle to her toes. She stands on one at a time and walks around gingerly. I assumed bumblefoot but she has no sores. I checked for mites and she is clean. Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on. My whole flock has stopped laying. I was planning on giving them an antibiotic but do not want to blindly give them meds. Any help is appreciated.
