    Last night something was trying to chew it's way into my hen house, unfortunately it was to dark to deal with it, I just heard it. This morning when I went out all the girls were there but one was holding her foot up. She was trying to walk on a "fist" and was putting the wing on the same side out for balance. She was fine the night before and there is no sign of other injury. Any ideas?

    Have you checked out her foot/leg for any signs of injury, puncture wounds etc? Check the bottom of her foot, to see if she has bumblefoot.

    No more limping! She charged me with the rest of the flock when I went in this morning with a corn muffin
