In the Brooder
- Jun 24, 2010
Hello everyone, first I want to say I love the new look. Will take some getting used to but I welcome the change. So, I have a hen that has been lame for quite a while. She had started limping and I thought she hurt herself. Looked her over and don't see anything really wrong. Her leg was just being held up. Now she has just been hopping along on one foot! It appears her other is just getting useless. I was hoping it would get better but just did not. She hops around quite well. I have not been letting her free range because I am afraid she is going to get hurt and can't really protect herself. So, she stays in the run. I just keep looking at her and wondering what to do. She is not quite a year old yet and so young. Can she live like this? Is there something else I can do? If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks.
