Chicken Fans, Any Clues?

Any ideas as to what could be wrong with my hen? Her feet are swollen. I didn't see any bumble foot issue. I've read possible gout? How and with what would you treat this?

  1. If it's gout, you may want to have your vet check the uric acid levels. Sometimes a chicken will get gout because it only eats seeds/pellets. I had read this somewhere a while back.

    1. I've had a hard time finding a vet that would look at Chickens. Give them a dog/cat and they're OK. They just chuckle when I mention a chicken!

  2. Are you using hydrated lime in your coop somewhere?

    1. No, the only thing I use is DE.
