What is this?! HELP!

It is footpad dermatitis, actually the beginning of bumblefoot, from standing on wet, soiled bedding. I would soak their feet in some warm Epsom salts water or betadine and water, dry them, and make sure they are one clean, dry pine shavings or out on grass. It will get worse if not treated, and that can lead to bacterial infections of the foot and joints. Here is some reading about this:
Yes, no surgery at this time. I don't know if wire flooring could also do that, but usually it is moisture. Once they get on some grass out side, they should be doing better. A good balanced diet can help also (20% protein chick starter/grower.)
