Thanks everyone,
I started the soak with Epsom salts, and it's looking better, though I feel like I'm not on top of it because I got sick! None of our feedstores out here cater to poultry, so am going to town tomorrow and see what I can get hold of. Thanks so much!

DJ, I don't know what stores you have there, but I got Pen-G at Tractor Supply Company. It wasn't with chicken stuff. It was in the fridge with mostly cattle injectibles. If you don't have a TSC there, hit the best farm/ranch store you can find and start there.

Foot rot stuff isn't in with the chicken stuff either. It's with the cattle and swine section usually. It can be very effective too, if the callus is not open enough to drain on its own.

You don't need specific "Chicken" Stuff. Like everyone said, Pen-G is for cattle,swine and poultry. I had to buy a big ole' bottle. But it worked everything else you can get a Walmart or your local pharmacy - Epsom salts, triple anitbiotic ointment or neosporene, gauze wrap, tape, even band-aids help to make alittle pad. Good Luck.

You can also check with a local vet. They may even give you individual syringes with a long lasting Pen-G dose. You may have to try a few different ones smile
Just be sure that you keep Pen-G refridgerated or the live bacteria die and it no longer is effective.

Thank you everyone,
Here, where we live, everything medical is for dogs and horses, but we bought penicillin and injected the rooster for a week. He'd begun to swell in both feet, but now he's looking and feeling much better. Thanks for all your help. smile
