    My chicken is approx 8 months old. She is small. Started
    Limping 2 days ago and now leg is black. There is a yellowish lump at top of hock. Otherwise she is normal - is getting around fine on one leg. Still eating and drinking. We live in a warm climate so not frostbite and doesn't smell so guessing not gangrene. Any ideas?
