    A oldtime chicken raiser gave me this info on treating bumble- after fighting it with my roo for over a year it is finally clearing up- wanted to pass on the info- i use vetwrap, covered with ducktape- make the poultice by dribbling betadine on sugar and put that on the scab and wrap it-

    My late rooster Chirp died from bumblefoot. I will keep this in case this happens again.

    He was a big boy, which didn't help with his foot!

    I am so sorry! Its tough to deal with, i have been fighting this in galahad for at least a year, i'd think its cleared up and it would return, i am going on 2 months now changing the bandages now once a week and it is slowly healing, but i think every case may be different- but i would use this treatment first- what were your boys symptoms that point to dying of bumble? just so folks can be on the alert?
