    Hi I recently bought a cream Legbar and although it was dark when I picked her up and it had been muddy from the rain, she isn't looking too happy and it's been a few days now. She is eating and walking around but just looking ropey. Is it just because she's still muddy? What is your opinion? [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Does she have any other signs of disease--drainage from the eyes/nostrils, watery/bloody/diarrhea stools, not eating/drinking? Her feathers just look muddy.
    You said you just bought her--do you have any other chickens on your property? If so, as a biosecurity measure, she would need to be separated from the others for a few weeks so if she is sick she would not infect any of your other birds.
