    My chicken is hopping. It is using both legs but only one is hurt. What should I do? It is half limping half hopping. I saw some chickens fly into the fence.I think it was one of them.

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]



    Sounds like you need to check out the Emergency diseases injures and cures and put up your problem there [​IMG]



    I normally separate any and all of my injured birds till they have recovered . [​IMG]

    Bumble foot is not caused by banging into a fence. You can put bumblefoot into the search box and symptoms should pop up. If it sounds like what your bird has, please post in "emergencies, diseases,injuries, cures" thread.

    I noticed that one of my hens was hopping on one foot today. We soaked her feet in warm water and Epsom salts and I cleaned her foot with dawn dish washing liquid. Then I sprayed with a spray I got at TSC. Aft r that I applied neosporine and wrapped with the wrap they sell for horses legs. I cut small strip. She's is a separate cage in the garage since the other hens started pecking at the bandage.
