I have three 3 month old hens - hatched by myself.
One morning I woke up to find that 1 of my hens wasn't using her left leg and her "elbow" joint is twice the size of the other. I've tried researching about it and found the only reasonable explanaton is to be bumblefoot. I cleaned the foot and looked at it closely and it wasn't pusy and had no black scab. So I'm back to square one with no explanation. Ive been cleaning the foot and "elbow" with very salty warm water for the past 4 days and rubbing Terramycin over the leg but this doesn't seem to be working...?
Anyone got a solution????
