I have an approx. 1 year old RIR who can't stand or support her own weight. She is eating and drinking very well, layer ration and fecal is normal in color and consistency, good color everywhere, warm skin. Came on about three days ago, noticed that she was favoring one leg, and off balanced. By the second day she was sitting down a lot and now both are not functioning properly, today is day three. No sores, not paralyzed...she can move them to scratch at herself and move herself around in the crate we've placed her on wood chips. She is also laying normal eggs. Also, we did notice that her comb has flopped over a bit.
No vets in Seattle will treat chickens, are any of you familiar with problem?
