I have read on here before and thought it would be nice to have people I can ask questions of. My son is the "Chicken Whisperer" and all of his 35 birds (chickens and turkeys) are extremely gentle. They all take turns sitting on his lap, haha. He has a ch icken that he believes has bumblefoot. He can't bear to cut in and clean it out. She has been in the house for 2 days on a chair. She can't walk but is loving the attention other than that. We are going to try soaking it in the fish med. (Forgot the name off hand). Anywwy, is it normal when a chicken has an injury for her to stop laying eggs?
