    my one year old chicken isn't able to walk and her right foot between & on top of her toes has white looking "bumps" or raised welts which seems to be the problem. I don't see anything else that could be causing her a problem. Any ideas? She does seem to be better today after two days of being separated from the rest of the flock.

    Could you post some pictures? Just from hearing your explanation, I'm not sure what the problem is. A picture would help. [​IMG]

    As the days have gone by, she is much better and not limping as much. I've kept her isolated and that has helped her to rest and not be moving around. I'll keep her alone for several more days so the other chickens don't pick on her. That could have been part of the problem. Thanks for your interest.
