    Long time member...things have been going smoothly...too smoothly obviously...

    Obelisk the Tormentor is an 11 (gonna be 12 year old Leghorn hen). For the past few weeks she's been limping on her right foot. As of now, she doesn't want to put any weight on it whilst she's walking, but she can still perch on the back of my chair.
    There's still the curling when you put her foot on your fingers.
    No black patch of bumblefoot, not enlarged like MS.

    Eating, drinking, pooping, begging for food, all AOKAY.

    I'm wondering if it's just, I hate to say it, Old Age?
