    Not sure what happened but when I went out to check on them today, she was limping some, checked her leg, there was little blood, and a small cut, but you can tell it hurts her. What should I clean and treat it with? She is with 4 others , same age and size.[​IMG]

    I spray all the chicken wounds with Blu-kote. As long as its not bleeding and the others is not picking on it----it would fair better with its siblings.
