    NO it is from trauma... Can you take a pic of the bottom of the foot? If there is a black scab on the bottom? if so you will need to take care of it or it coul dbe life threatening to your roo

    Look up bumblefoot in the search. There are numerous threads on how to treat it, some with my name on them as author.

    Don't use antibiotic's except like triple antibiotic ointment with out pain killer. You have to remove the scab and puss from the bumblefoot and keep foot bandage and change bandage everyday, Just use the search and type in bumblefoot there is some really great information already on here about how to treat it.

    Quote:Make sure when you are doing anything with the foot wear rubber gloves. there is staph infection under the scab. Make sure you do the search on here for bumblefoot. Cyn has some really great advice that I followed along with dawg53, on how to remove the scab and puss. It does include soaking the foot and how to remove the bumblefoot. Make sure to do the search that is what I did when my hen had bumblefoot.
