    so my RIR cant walk at all, she was fine all though had a limp for about a week, i took her away from the flock to let her heal and relax but since yesterday it seems she cant move her legs well.

    shes 4 years old, we use pine shavings as bedding and feed Modesto milling organic feed

    atm i have her on nutri-drench to see if it helps.

    the only thing i think she could of got into is the terminex spray by the house but its supposed to be all natural and pet friendly, we even let it dry a couple hours before we put her back over there, this was a week ago though when we first put her in the yard because of the limp.

    anyone have any ideas? sadly i dont have a chicken vet i can take her to that i know of.
     
  2. This may sound silly, but have you checked the bottom of her feet for bumblefoot? When my roo was limping, I caught him & checked his feet, and he had two big bumbles! Just a thought.
