Our 6 month old gold-laced wyandotte looks to have injured her leg (roughly 3 weeks ago) but we can't figure out what is going on and it doesn't seem to be fixing itself. I wish I could get a good video of it, I'll keep trying, but it's hardly noticeable on camera and she's a flighty bird. Basically whenever she walks her right leg looks very stiff and her hock kind of jerks outward and she rolls a little on the pad of her foot. Her toes can still curl and flex and grab hold of my finger. But when she walks she doesn't really use her toes. Her toes kind of curl inward a little at the same time her hock jerks outward and then she quickly takes the weight off of it. Otherwise they don't grip the earth like they normally should. She doesn't hold the leg up or really favor it, but there is clearly something wrong. She's still eating, drinking, and laying eggs. Eyes are clear and poop is fine. We felt her legs and compared them but cannot find anything out of place, though truly we don't know what to look for. It still bends just fine and doing so doesn't seem to cause her any pain. We're hoping to see a vet as a last resort because her leg doesn't seem to bother her or show any sign of fatal injury, it's just hindering her. Is there anything we can do to help it along to correcting itself? We're thinking of giving her an epsom salt bath, maybe a little bit of kid's aspirin if the bath does nothing, to see if it is pain related or not. We've let her rest in confinement but she's showing no recovery. I guess what I'm asking, maybe to try and identify the injury, is do any of these symptoms relate to known injuries in the leg? Has she possibly rolled her ankle? Pulled a muscle? Sprain? There is no swelling or warmth though. Hurt a nerve? Something with the hock? I don't know anything outside of dislocation. She can still put weight on the other leg, so she couldn't have broken or dislocated something. Sorry everything is so vague, this is just all so strange and the only thing I can think of is take her to the vet but I'm the only one in favor of it.
