    Redfoot spots on neck

    we do have a 100% confirmed case in a red foot now via necropsy of austwickia. these *could* be the same thing. hard to say from those pics. if its this bacteria this is how it works one day they dont have the bumps the next you see them. the only way to 100% know for sure is to have the spots...

    Is this that dreaded, vile yellow bump issue?
