    I noticed my 1 year old BA was limping a little two days ago and still yesterday. Today it seemed to be worse and she hopped on one foot instead of running and was not putting all her weight on it. I picked her up and looked her over but didn't see anything. She's being picked in her hind quarters and it's bald and red in a couple of places there. This is something that's been going on for sometime so I don't think it's related. Several day ago the hens were fighting a little due to the fact that I recently rehomed the rooster. The fighting was mild and lasted several hours and then stopped completely. Maybe she got hurt while fighting? Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. [​IMG]
