    Hi, all!

    I've been reading the Backyard Chickens for a long time - but this is my first post.

    We have a chicken who is not adding any weight to his one leg. When we stretch the leg out, he peeps - it sounds like he might be in pain. The other leg does not make him cry out.

    They are being fed medicated feed (Purina).

    What's going on with this little guy?

    Need pictures/more information?
