    My banty cochin right now has very icky looking feet. They are covered in pin feathers and look very painful. For the past 2 weeks, she takes little rest breaks (sitting down) and the other part of the time, shes scratching around and walking OK, but when she runs, she limps. I looked at the bottom of her foot for bumble foot or something, but it's just the pin feathers from the top of her foot that seem to be hurting her. Can I do anything to ease her pain?
