I've looked through the forums and didn't really see anything that would explain a bum leg or what to do about it. Yesterday, my daughter notices one of our hens (about 7 mos old) was holding her leg up. She was able to get to her roost and stayed there even this morning when I let them out of the coop. I took her down from the roost and examined her leg. I don't see a wound, swelling and/or scab that might be bumblefoot, she's not splayed like Mareks, and when I moved her leg and palpated it, everything seemed to be in order. I'm new to chickens though so might have missed something. She hobbles/hops and uses her wing as support when needed. Today, we put food and a water bowl right in front of her and she gladly ate and drank, so I dont' think she was getting too much yesterday. The other chickens seem to be picking on her though. I'm wondering if I should isolate her in a dog crate for awhile and hope that she gets better with time? Or should I do something more proactive?? I would hate to have to put her down as my kids (age 5 & 6) would be devastated! Any ideas what could be causing the lameness/??
