    You're probably like my hen that has to stay in the coop with him but as soon as I let em out to free range, she's ready to get rid of him. And he runs straight to the other coops and does his little dance for the rest of the ladies.

    Good news! It's a good idea to pay attention to stuff like that because it can sneak up on you. I think they might be limping with bumble foot, though. I was giving my girls the once over last month and noticed one had really swollen looking feet compared to all the others. I thought sure she had a problem. Went out at night and took her off the roost to check. Nope! She just has fat feet! (Although she prefers that they are called sturdy.)


    Edit: typos make me OCD!

    Lol. :gig. Now that's funny. Yes I was glad to see the bottoms his feet so clean. The water didn't even have but a couple speaks of dirt in it. I have noticed the backs of his legs and between his toes are reddish. I'm not sure if this is normal but from what I've read it seems to be. They've been like that for a while. He acts perfectly healthy and happy . And eats and drinks well.
