I discovered a BO hen with a very swollen left foot. She won't walk on it obviously and she tries to limp and hop for the most part. And I just noticed that it's oozing a yellowish liquid. 1) What type of bird , age and weight. BO hen, 1.5 years, about 6 lbs. 2) What is the behavior, exactly. limping, holding foot up. mostly is ok with laying to the right, off of the injured foot. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms?just this morning. they've been free-ranging since about 6:30-7am 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms?no 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma.no very obvious trauma. i see a few small puncture wounds. i mean, very small, that *could* be snake bites. 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation.snake bite? 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all.as far as i know, bugs and chick starter. but i just discovered her so i'm not sure if she's eaten today at all. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc.dunno yet 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far?nothing other than bringing her in to keep her off the foot and inspect closer. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet?treat myself. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. i could try but there's not much to see. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use. hay in nests and on floor. i'm wondering if it's a snake bite, should i soak it in epsom salt? it's so swollen and feels like it might have a fever in the foot. she's laying next to me while i type one-handed. her comb and face is pale but her waddle looks ok. i can't remember if that's normal for her. she has six babies right now that are about 6-7 weeks old. all i can think is she probably was trying to protect them and was struck. she's a very good mama. any ideas?
