Swollen foot but no plug? Bumblefoot or not?

    I noticed my favorite girl limping today when I went to let them out of the coop and found a scratch and swelling on the pad of her foot. It doesn't look like it has a plug or scab so I don't think its bumblefoot but I'm not sure? I've never dealt with any foot injuries. [​IMG][/IMG]

    I don't know if its from the scratch or if its bumblefoot. I plan on soaking it in epsom salts and water, and neosporin or vetericyn and wrap it. What else should I do for my poor Irene?
