Hello! When I went out to check on my chicks a little bit ago, I noticed one of my barred rocks was laying down and didn't come to greet me. The 2 barred rocks are my oldest girls and have been getting treats from me longer than the other chicks, so they usually greet me right away and are my friendliest chicks. So, I went over to the side of the run where she was and she moved to her side and stretched both legs out- but nothing seemed wrong at this point, she was just stretching. Then she tucked her legs back under her and still laid there. This is odd for her. I went over and checked the feeders & waterers to make sure they didn't need anything, and when I shook one feeder to make sure the feed was coming down, she got up. One of her legs seemed a little further out to the side, but looked normal other than that- it was just not straight down next to the other one (if that makes sense). As she walked to the feeder, she sort of hobbled- still putting a little weight on the leg, but not very well and not much weight- sort of a limp. She'd take a few steps and stop often. Then when she was at the feeder, the leg slid out from under her and she fell over. She hopped right back up and continued to eat, but the leg just wasn't holding her. I can't tell if she is in pain- she isn't acting nervous or worked up at all, and she did eat while I was there. But something is definitely wrong. My husband thinks we should just give her time and watch it. What do you all think? I am a mess about this, by the way. You can try to prepare yourself as much as possible about the fact that things will happen with your birds (or any animals for that matter) but when it actually happens- at least for me- I don't feel prepared at all. I'm questioning my ability to keep chickens because I hate this aspect of it SO much! I have no idea what will happen if one needs to be culled due to an injury or sickness. My husband says he'll take care of it for me, but he also works a lot (so what if it was an emergency and needed to be done right away?). But, I love having them, and can only imagine how much we'll enjoy them once they are helping us by laying eggs too! Ugh. I just don't know. I just need a little support and advice right now, I guess. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you! Edited for spelling error.
