    Red my RIR and I have been batteling a mysterious "illness". She started limping a couple of months ago and that has never gone away. It started to look as if she was getting better for a while but this a few minutes ago (i just got home from a funeral) I noticed that she is hardly getting up on her feet and walking again, and she is using her wings to 'balance' herself. She is back to panting again also. It's in the mid 80's here so not too hot. None of my other chickens are panting... Please any ideas???? I truly am desperate now!!!

    Hi. I think anyone that takes a guess would need more info, age, how many chickens, etc. I think there's a guide above. The limp leg and the wing walking do sound serious.

    The other thread that I just found again has more information on what has been going on with Red. Please reffer to that thread now as I will be looking at that one more than this one. Thank you
