Hi all,

Just hoping to get an opinion from the hive mind. She’s not running around like she usually does and I’ve noticed one foot looks a bit swollen. We just culled one girl and I’d hate to let this get out of hand (or foot) and have to cull another.

Any advice appreciated.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think it might be bumblefoot. Maybe another member can shine more light on this. Thankfully it's completely cure-able.
 
Time for Bucket Chook! Gotta contain the old girl in a bucket with a lid (you can cut a hole in the lid for her to poke her head out). Fill the bucket to knee height on the chook with a solution of Epsom Salt (probably 75-100 grams or so should do it). Leave her in there for 30-45 mins twice a day until the bumble foot goes away.

Here's the same method for ducks so you know what I'm talking about:
