I had to leave my two week old bantam chicks with a sitter for a while because I had to leave town for a family emergency. I was checking them all this afternoon as I changed their bedding, and it seems that about half of them have developed bumblefoot. I am thinking the sitter did not change the bedding in the brooder enough as it gets wet and dirty pretty quick. They were not the most reliable pet sitter, but it was all I had on short notice. So, the question is, how should I treat such tiny babies? Their feet are so small that I am afraid of hurting them badly by trying to drain/clean away dead tissue on the infected areas, and it's not going to be feasible to bandage them. I am going to start changing their bedding twice a day to keep everything very, very clean while they heal, but what else do I do? I read somewhere that I can soak their feet with Epsom salt, and I can try that. What about hydrogen peroxide or something else antiseptic to wash the affected feet? I have a chlorhexidine rinse from my dentist for cleaning out where I had teeth pulled, might that be helpful to wash the feet? Should I put something on them like neosporin?
