Hello All - I have two chickens, one a RIR one a silkie/orpington mix (I think). Both are around 3 yrs old, both have lived happy, healthy lives. Until the past couple of weeks. The RIR sounds like she has laryngitis. She eats and drinks well, tho her poo is a bit runny. Otherwise acting normally. It's been going on for a couple of weeks--she makes wheezy hen noises instead of happy hen noises, and when I pick her up her breathing sounds a little wheezy (this is a new development). For the silkie/orpington, earlier this week she seemed to be favoring one leg, and then it turned into an obvious limp and she's taken to sitting rather than standing. She has black lumps around her toenails, and one large black bump on a toe. I gave her an Epsom soak for her feet, and when I washed around the big bump it bled a little. I've and have been spraying both feet with a bacatricin, and have bandaged the sore with some antibiotic ointment. I've searched online for bumblefoot and based on the photos I've seen, it doesn't quite fit the bill. Both are currently living the posh life in a crate in the basement, much to my husband's chagrin. Any ideas? For the foot, I'm wondering if the black bumps are frostbite? I'm in Upstate NY and it got SUPER cold this winter, and I'm wondering if it got to her feet? Not that she liked to wander in the snow--she prefers to stay in the snow-less coop. But I truly have no idea. I've never studied her feet--she's not a chicken who will easily be caught, so I don't spend that much time up super close with her. This is my first experience with chicken injuries/illness. Thanks for any help you can provide.
