Hello, my hen went to roost fine last night but came out limping this morning. There is no visible injury, no mites, no marks and when I bend her hock her toes close in fine. She is a Buff Orpington 6 to 7 months old, she eats lay pellets and a bit of scratch and fruit plus forages. She is still eating and let's me handle her fine. I am not sure if she has laid eggs yet as I have not observed her nesting, she is in a flock of 5. I have her separated and resting comfortably and she did stand a bit but won't walk, her poop is normal.
