    If you do a search in the Emergencies section of the Forum you will find considerable information on bumblefoot. Good luck.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] There are a number of reasons a chicken would limp, from bumble foot, to foot or leg injury, to pests and certain disease. Examine your hen's feet and legs and post as much details of what you find and your impressions in the Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures forum section. Fingers crossed!
