So Im talking to a woman about trading 2 of my chickens for 3 of her large cages tomorrow, in the middle of the week she lost her Dutch Bantam rooster to a dog attack and then the past couple of days the hen has been unable to walk. she said she consulted an online vet an he said that leg paralysis is a symptom of about 10 different illnesses. He also believes that in losing the rooster and stressing the hen out, her resistance was lowered but everything about her is fine except she cant walk.. her owner has to feed her by hand since she cant reach the food but other then that the hen is fine! what could it be? the lady doesnt know if we should do the trade off just yet or not if the hen is sick (but no one else in her flock is sick) or if having the smaller birds im trading her would calm the hen down so she will recover faster. she also said she WAS able to take 2 or 3 steps today in the cage she has her in.. Im sorry if this is all over the place. I just got back from my daughter's 1st birthday party an I have a headache..
