About 3 days ago my BA hen (hatched in May this year) was holding her leg up and won’t put any weight on it. She limps really badly if she tries to put weight on it and usually just hops on the one good leg right now. I checked her over and her leg looked ok, no visible injuries, but her middle toe looked swollen. Today, she is bleeding from one spot on her leg and one spot on her foot. I thought about scaly leg mites, but it came on so suddenly and everyone else’s legs look perfectly fine, as does her other leg. What would cause this sudden lameness and bleeding? Any ideas?
