    Hello thank you for taking the time to look at my post. I have a 7 month old Buff Orpington hen and something happened to her foot not quite sure what happened but i believe its an infection. Its been going on for about a week. She was in a lot of pain so i soaked her feet in Epsom salt and it helped so now i do it every day and she isn't in any pain. I also put Polysporin on her infection every day and wrap it to keep it clean. It isn't really getting better but its not getting worse. Should i give her penicillin? Should I give Her Anything? What should I do. Thank you for reading this.

    Wouldn’t worry too much.She looks fine.Can she walk?Is she stumbling at all?I would do what your doing for a few more days then see if it looks any better.
