    I have a hen that cannot use her feet. No grasping reflex or anything. They are warm so they have circulation. I brought her in and cleaned her up lastnight and it looks like her feet have small globs of yellow/white fatty deposites or infection all over her feet.... they're slightly bumpy (no bumbles). Not sure what it is. I'll try to get a photo tonight. Just wondering if anyone else ran across something like this.
