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!!!
