    I have a jumbo pekin that I am using to show at the upcoming fair. Awhile ago I noticed that one of the ankles seemed a bit bigger than the other but there where no obvious signs of discomfort so I just kept an eye on her. This morning I noticed that she began to limp. I didnt see any obvious cuts or infections on the pads but I could be wrong. I will be going down there soon to soak her feet in epsom salt and to clean the pad to see if there is any visible signs of what could be wrong. Anyone have any idea on what it could be?
