Hi I am new to this but I was hoping someone could help me. I was given a Rhode island red hen that my daughter in law picked up off the middle of the road. She seemed OK except she could not walk and her feathers where falling out. I recently had another Rhode island red that could not walk and I fixed her with some vitamins and TLC which is why my daughter in law bought her to me. I have fed her laying mash, weet-bix with yoghurt, vitamins and small amounts of kitchen scraps. She eats and drinks fine and she does not have diarrhea. Her poos have been black in colour with a small amount of white. Not runny, but not solidish either. She has been wormed and she also had mites which I have treated also. I take her out of her pen and put her out on the grass every afternoon for a couple of hours. She cant walk and just shuffles herself backwards. I have gotten her to where she is standing, although she still keeps her chest low to the ground. When I look at her feet she is often standing with one foot on the other. Her left leg seems fine but her right leg appears to be sore to touch because if I touch it she gets upset and flaps and wings and tries to get away. Also on her right leg she has 3 orange/yellow coloured lumps. They are not overly large, about half a pea size, that's the biggest one. I have searched all over and cannot find anything about orange coloured lumps. I thought she may have scaly leg mites but it looks nothing like the pictures. She does not have bumble foot either. So if anyone had any ideas I would be really grateful as I would like to save her and not have to put her down.
