    If you still want to know, bumblefoot is an infection on bottom pad of a chickens foot. It forms by bacteria on the ground, I can't remember the exact name of it. The best way to treat it is to squeeze the puss and bacteria out of it and put some disinfections on it.

    Well, I checked all my chicken's feet last night, and I can report that there is no "bumble feet" - thank goodness!
