I have a 21 week old beatiful little Welsummer gal, 2 actually. But Daisy Doodle has always seemed to have a limp with her left leg. I have inspected her legs, body and everything and EVERYTHING seems good. The ONLY difference I have seen from one leg and foot to the next is that on the left leg there are 3 spots down the outside of the leg that have small little "ingrown" feathers!? Small little hair/feather like bumps. I picked them out from under the scales and they were exactly that, tiny ingrown feathers. Nothing on the right leg and I know Welsummers do not have feathered legs. So I am thinking maybe the limp is from a genetic malformation or something? There is no crookedness in the foot or leg....She just has a hitch in her get along....Is there anything I should be worried about in the future? What if it gets worse??
