    Our Silver Ameraucana has this bump in-between her toes and I was wondering if it was bumblefoot. The following article prompted the question

    http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/07/bumblefoot-causes-treatment-warning.html

    She's skittish so I don't want to do surgery so if there are any other treatments please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Oh, and no, she doesn't seem to be in pain. She acts normal (running around, digging, eating grass, enforcing her pecking order position, etc.)
