    hi to you all,

    Hope someone can help. Our chicken has started to limp and when standing still, holds the leg up. Do you think the leg is broken? If so can a vet fix it and does anyone have a estimated price for treatment? Thank you.

    Hi Lindy,
    Have a really good close look at the leg and foot. Look for any sores or build-up of much or anything that is different to the other foot. Post pictures if possible.
    Also, post your answers to the questions in the sticky in this forum to make sure you're sharing all the right info. Hopefully someone knowledgeable will be along soon to help!
