    Is this normal? After I left the coop and got near my house, she seemed to still be hopping but a little bit faster.

    I checked up under her foot for strange bumps, but didn't find any. We also clipped the tips of her toenails on all foots, but she still limps a little bit.

    I have one who limps. She has always limped. I rescued her from a larger coop because they seemed to be picking on her, but now she has settled in with my banties. But still limps. No external reason, as far as I see. She lays fine.

    Who knows, eh?

    How long has she been limping? My Black Australorp starting limping after I broke her of her broodiness (She tried hatching eggs but sadly the only one that developed died). She starting limping the day after she stayed off the nest. I was thinking maybe she pulled a muscle after sitting for so long. Kinda like how an athlete doesn't stretch before a strenuous work out. I picked her up and massaged it and her gait was considerably better. She isn't limping anymore.
