Noticed one of my chickens was struggling to walk the other day and saw a black mass type thing(pictures) on her toe. I soaked her feet and tried to lightly pull it. I was scared to hurt her so I stopped when she pulled away but it was coming away very slightly. Ordered scalpels and normal supplies to do surgery on it because I thought it was stage 3 bumblefoot. My mother tried again today and managed to pull it off with only a fair bit of pressure. It left no hole or anything. Just a tight band over her toe.
