    My hen has begun limping after a hawk encounter (not really sure if there was an actual attack). I cannot see any sign of injury, but she will not put any weight on one foot. Coincidentally, or not, she also seems to be starting a molt. She is eating fine and laying just a bit slower than routine.

    Any thoughts or suggestions on what to look for would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
