    My chicken just started limping and won't put any pressure on one of her legs. she keeps it tucked away under her and walks funny(sticks it way out in front of her and barely puts pressure on it) i don't know what happened. it doesn't look broken and it it slightly blue in the center. Please Help i don't know what to do?

    Pictures of her leg while standing may help. I would place her in a pen or crate with food and water to rest the leg and observe her more.
