In the Brooder
- Jul 13, 2016
I have a 16wk old free range chicken and I noticed she was limping yesterday. At night when they go in the coop they jump up in the rafters, so in the morning they jump down. Not sure if she injured it from jumping down? Its not broken, she is putting some weight on it....but holds it up when staying still. It looked like she had poop stuck on it yesterday, so I thought that maybe the problem. I try and help them down from the rafters in the morning, except mornings I have to work. It still looks like there maybe a little poop on her foot. So any info would be great. This is the first time I have had chickens. So not sure if I should keep her in for a few days? Is there any medications that can be put on if ut were cut, or meds thst can be bought from local feed stores...tractor supply? I live in Maine. Thank you to who ever can help me???
