Ok so I've noticed in the last couple of weeks that my head hen has been lets just say lazy.. That's what I initially thought. She lays down a lot of the time and is not walking much. When she does walk, she seems to walk just fine but it seems like she avoids it. I've felt her legs up and down a few times and never noticed anything broken or out of normal. But now in the last week it's gotten to the point where she stays separate from the other girls just so she can sit. Or she will lay down while the flock forages around her. She is still eating and drinking, I've made sure of that. So after some research I thought she might be egg bound.. just gave her a warm bath in olive oil to relax her and feel around for any lumps.. I did not find any lumps of any kind but I did notice she now has these dark spots on her legs! I don't remember ever seeing this before. Has anyone ever dealt with black spots on the legs? I thought maybe scaley leg mites, but the spots are not clear at all, they are definitely black. I've never dealt with scaley leg mites before though. What could it be? How do I help her? She is my head hen, I've separated her from the girls and they don't know what to do without her now. Poor thing. I would really like any advise you have. Thank you!
