    Today while checking on my girls, I noticed one with both feet swollen, one more so than the other. Can't understand how I didn't notice this yesterday. Anyway, I ran in and consulted you all here in your wonderful posts with lots of help. The only question I still have, is how do you know if you got it all?? Also, tomorrow is supposed to be a total rain event with lots of rain, should I put her in a good sized cage with a tarp over it to keep her dry?? That seems like a good idea to me. She was such a good girl through the whole thing I couldn't believe it. I have a weak stomach and it almost made me sick. Got through it because I was so worried about her. Isn't it something what we do for our feathered friends!!

    Thanks for any help,

    Yes, give her a night inside to recover. I've a couple nights with chickens staying in the house this summer. Poor things. I hope your girl is better soon.
