I got 3 new chickens 2 weeks ago (cochins) and one of them was walking kinda funny when I got them. I was torn about even bringing her home because I didn't want a sick chicken but where I got them from was pretty gross. I would have taken them all if I could have. Plus the lady gave me the limpy one for free. And my kids begged. Anyway, I just kept an eye on her at first and she seemed to stop limping pretty quickly. When I went out to check on them today, I noticed she was limping pretty badly and looking closer, when she got going faster (as I was trying to catch her) her toes were curled up and she was walking on them like that (only the toes on the leg she is favoring). I thoroughly checked her feet and legs and I don't see any bumble foot sores, raised scales, or any obvious redness. She can really barely run and she keeps laying down. The three are quarantined right now and are in a tractor so there isn't anything for them to get hurt on. Anyone have any ideas what it could be or what to do? UPDATE: I have been giving all of the new chickens an electrolyte/vitamin supplement for a few days now. It's especially for poultry with a high Vit B2 amount. The limpy chicken started walking with both feet curled up the day after my original post. She was wobbly and falling over on her face, etc. Then today, when she came out of her box, she was actually dragging that first lame leg. It was heart breaking. She still looks good though, shiny feathers, she's eating and drinking (because she just stays sitting by the food and water). I have no idea what to do. I was really hoping it was just the supplement, so I knew it wasn't something contagious. How long do I wait to see if she gets better? I wasn't expecting worse this morning.
