    Hi all,
    I am wrestling with whether or not to cut these bumblefoot feet and bandage? I have recently cut their highest perch down and replaced the substrate in their pens to make it softer. The Barnevelder feet I have already cut and bandaged but have come back. No one really has painful, swollen feet or is limping but Epsom salt baths don't seem to be helping either.
