Well three of my Ameraucana pullets act like one of tier feet hurt. It's not frostbite, splinter, cut, etc, but definitely physical. Which ever got the limp on I reddish pink. But I can squeeze and poke their foot and it doesn't hurt them. I think their feet are just cold. They have a thin layer f sawdust down. But they always eat the sawdust and everything. Looks like I might have to get some straw. I absolutely hate using straw . I might just make little walls with straw and use sawdust an corncob to fill the rest. Their bedding is about to get as expensive as there feed.
All of my birds are COLD and lifting their feet. I was really worried today. All the rain and standing water isnt helping! I am adding a ton, literally of hay on all the runs and coops. will have to get more hay soon. I used up a 6x6 roll and several square bales just getting the runs dry. Dry birds are happy. wet birds will be ill. All my runs are dry tonight... hope there isnt more rain a few days.
