That looks like it might be bumble foot... Can anyone else help with this?
I know that it requires surgery, here is a link:
Yes !! i read about the bumblefoot but is in the footpad... or all the pictures I've seen, that's where the problem is. Perhaps he stepped on something I do not know because it looks like a small wound but whit the dirt and debris is not well appreciated. I wiped with alcohol.Bumble foot Is on the footpad
I will wrap her ''finger'' tomorrow now she is sleeping. I have CLOTRIMAZOL + BETAMETHASONE... can I use it ?Bumble foot can be any where on the foot. But, it is most commonly on the pad because that area can get cut easily. It is simply an infection on a chicken's foot. I agree with Jesusfreak101, wait it out and if it gets worse treat for bumblefoot. But the surgery is a very dramatic step to take unless you are positive that it is bumblefoot. Until then I would put some Aquafor or Neosporin on it and wrap(how to wrap link bellow) it (it will help keep the bird comfortable and if it is not bumblefoot it will help it heal).
