    Hen limping!!

    My hen, Drumstick, is normally very healthy and doesn’t often have injuries. This morning I noticed she was limping on her right foot. I tried to figure out what was causing it, but I didn’t notice anything. I provided photos. Edit: She had poop on her foot and I washed it off the best I could...

    Pullet with leg injury, not sure how to proceed

    One of my 5 month old Bielefelder pullets started limping a couple days ago. She was eating, drinking, and getting around ok. I looked at her leg and it looked normal (no bumps, bruises, scratches, etc..) but she didn't want to bend it nor could she close her toes around my finger. Also, one toe...

    Bumblefoot Question in Rooster

    We just got our little hen up and running after a nasty eye/upper respiratory infection, and now our rooster seems to have bumblefoot! The vet who took a quick look at him thought he had just pulled a muscle and needed to rest. Do the pictures look like bumblefoot to you? His symptoms: limping...

    Chickens limping, no sign of injury

    Hi all, About two months ago, one of my chickens started limping badly on her left foot and didn't want to move at all. There was no sign of injury or bumblefoot. I searched online for possible causes and ruled out being eggbound. I thought maybe she had a stroke based on what I read on this...

    Guinea limping and hoarse voice

    Yesterday I noticed one of my very prominent (loud and outspoken) female guineas was not very loud when she made the "Buh-crahh" call it is very much at the same hushness and hoarseness of my adult drake duck. Now today I noticed that she is limping and lays down mostly. She can scoot away...

    Help!! My duck is hurt!

    Earlier today while I was at school my dog attacked the ducks. They are all fine and don't have any cuts or punctures of any kind but Im very worried about my Pekin Emperor. He is limping pretty badly and looks like he's having trouble moving it. I checked and it didn't look or feel like...

    Floppy Footed Franklin

    Hi all! One of our ducks has a floppy foot that is causing him to trip. It doesn't appear to be an issue with the leg, just the paddle. I don't believe it is bumble foot but I'm still new at this. We have steps in/out of the pool and he rarely uses them, preferring to topple the 8 inches over...

    Limping duck...what to do?

    Went out this morning to find one of our ducks limping slightly around their pen. I figured he’d probably just tripped over something (he’s done this before), but now he doesn’t want to put any weight on it and just kinda lays around on his belly. His (left) foot doesn’t look swollen, but it...

    Chicken's foot is nothing like I've seen on the internet. Ideas?

    Okay, so I have this friend who has a couple Barred Rock hens. They are about 2 years old. When they were about months old, they were attacked in a chicken coop by rats. One died. One sustained some injuries (but is fine now) but Maggie May was attacked bad. He said you could see the bone in the...

    Limping Female Pekin Duck - what should I do to heal her?

    Hello, I hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day. So I previously had a duck pass away after she had been limping/immobile for a few weeks out of the blue. I came home and she was passed away laying by the coop with the other ducks and it was really heartbreaking. Now I have another one of my...

    Help! Light Brahma pullet sick again, bloody poop and limping. What should I do?

    Hello, I have a pullet who was sick about a week ago. I treated her with corid and SafeGuard and she seemed to recover so I put her back with her flock. This morning she has a bad limp in her right leg. There is no obvious injuries - swelling, blood etc. I cant tell what part of her leg is...

    Sorry about where the photos are, I can’t figure this thing out yet. Please read below, is this scaly might? Blue my Whiting True Blue about 26 weeks, starting limping today . She can get up and go if she is getting away from you, but she is otherwise staying off her feet. August has...

    Limping Chicken

    Hello. My dear Annie is limping and the problem seems to be her left foot/leg. I noticed her sitting a lot yesterday while the flock was free-ranging but didn’t think much of it until I saw her limping today. She rests frequently. Both of her feet feel warm to the touch, but I compared with...

    Year old hen is limping...day #2

    My largest Brahma hen (she just turned a year old) is limping. No sign of bumblefoot, no swelling, no wounds. She was fine when I let them out yesterday morning. I went back out to let them out in the yard and noticed her limping. She is eating and drinking fine. She “chickened” around the run...

    Do I pluck these feathers?????

    My young showgirl has been having troubles walking since she was small. It started out as a limp and has continued until now she doesn't want to put any weight on her foot. After further inspection I noticed her foot feathers are actually bent and she's actually stepping on them, I'm sure its...

    Limping chicken - Not Bumblefoot

    We noticed our ~22 week old Marceline started limping all of a sudden about 2 weeks ago. I saw her an hour before and she wasn't limping so it was pretty sudden. We checked her thoroughly for injury or sprain. There was nothing there and she made no reaction to anything touched. We checked her...

    Limping chicken

    One of my chickens appears to have a bit of a limp and seems to be resting more. She even let me catch her and pick her up easily which she usually doesn’t really do so I’m a little bit worried. I just noticed it when I let them out to free range a couple hours ago. At first she seemed fine...

    Rooster with Mucus-like stuff in his mouth

    My little silkie rooster hasn't been doing well. He has had what I call "Bubbly eye" for the past couple days. He's been limping for about the same amount of time. Today he can barely stand and is having a hard time breathing. I was giving him some Terramycin for his eye when I noticed this...

    Duck crossing legs when walking.

    I have a pekin drake that is 3 years old. Within the last month he started limping and now his legs cross when he walks. He is not walking much now. Any suggestions? Everyone else is well.
