Hi, one of my lovely brown rangers started limping about a month ago out of the blue, one minute she was free ranging in the garden with the other chickens and the next minute we noticed that she could not walk properly. This has got gradually worse over the weeks, and she started shaking her leg backwards as if to get rid of something but was able to walk around with a pronounced limp until about a week ago she started using her wing to support her as she couldn't stand up at all. We took her to the vet who diagnosed a nerve inflammation in the thigh and prescribed metacam. She has been taking this for the last four days and there has been a slight improvement in that she now can stand up without using her wing but she is still shaking her leg backwards although a bit less. She is still not moving around a lot. We are keeping her indoors in the warmth, and she is eating and drinking well and looks very alert. Any ideas of what we could do to help her recover? Has somebody else had a similar experience? Thanks in advance for any advise as we do not want to cull her, she is a very much loved pet.
