Hi all, I noticed one of my hens was not eating with the rest of the flock this morning so I isolated her and then noticed that both her feet are swollen and hot, like an infection. The weird part is that there are two black looking scabs right on the bottom, one scab on each foot, about 1/4 " diameter that are very hard, almost like there is a ball in there under the scabby areas! The rest of the area around the hard part is swollen and softer. I have no idea how she could have harmed herself on both feet like that. Could it be some kind of foot disease? Or just an infection? Does it need to be lanced and drained? She drank some water and ate some yogurt I offered her but refuses any other food. She is a 1 1/2 year old Rhode Island Red/ Leghorm cross laying hen. So far her energy is down but she is still alert. I cleaned off the feet, rubbed a little povidone iodine on the pads, and put triple antibiotic on all the swollen areas. Any advice on what it might be and what else I should do, if anything, would be greatly appreciated. Mahalo!
