My chicken has been fine lately but today she wouldn’t get up to go inside. Her leg is lame without any sign of injury. She is about 5 years old. Any suggestions?I gave her a bath and have her resting in a separate enclosed area so not to be disturbed by others.

Can you look for any swelling, redness, or green bruising over the entire leg? Check the footpad for any cuts or scab of bumblefoot. Pictures may help. Do you have a rooster? Have you added any new birds recently? Make sure that she has food and water within reach.
