Hey everybody, One of our buckeyes has been having problems, seemingly with her right leg. She'd had a previous problem with it before Christmas that had seemed to get better (she'd occasionally limp a little, but could run and keep up with the others.) The local homestead supply store folks checked her out, but couldn't find a break (neither could I), and we figured it was probably a sprain. But this last month, it came back and seems worse. She gets around (slowly) and mostly has to flap to keep herself upright for short walks. She can't get into or out of the coop, we give her a lift both ways. As another side effect, she sleeps on the floor right now, as she can't get onto the roost or stay stable on it. Does anyone have any thoughts? One person suggested she might be egg bound (she hasn't started laying yet), or has back issues. The last one I don't think is likely, as she can definitely move her legs. But she does spend a lot of time lying on her side, presumably to rest them. Her wing feathers are getting a bit worn out on the pinions, too, from so much ground contact. I MAY have detected some swelling in her ankle joint, but I'm not certain. If it is swollen, it's only a little bit. And I still can't find any fracture. I rubbed some icy/hot into it the other night, but if it helped with any pain, it didn't do anything for her mobility. Other than her legs, she seems healthy and is eating. Thanks for any suggestions!
