Bumblefoot- Single Caretaker Treatment Strategies

Have you noticed your chicken limping?  Did you take a look at her feet and see a swelling on the bottom with a dark scab in the middle.  It could be Bumblefoot, a common infection caused by the staph organism.  But don't panic.  Even if you are the only caretaker for your flock, you can take care of the infection in most cases, by yourself.  Veterinarians who will treat poultry are few and far between, so it pays to have a first aid kit stocked and to know how to handle common ailments and infections.  Read more about treating Bumblefoot by yourself on Timber Creek Farm.
