    I have a hen that started limping on one leg by the next day she could not walk.
    The first week she could not walk or stand. The second week she is now able to stand and walk a little. I noticed today that her tail feathers are hanging low.
    I was wondering what that might mean.

    I am not sure why she started to limp but I am thankfull that she is getting better.

    Thanks for any thoughts.
