Hi! So, my 3 and 1/2 year old chicken started limping yesterday. She favors her foot/leg, but will still put weight on it to walk around, and even runs in a sort of skipping way. She is acting like herself, and I inspected her foot/leg and there are no obvious injuries. No sores or cracks, the skin looks good... She also doesn't really react to me poking and prodding at the foot/leg, although she doesn't especially like to be held, so it would be hard to say if she was reacting. But no noises of pain or anything. It's hard to say, but it may be more pronounced today. I guess my question is: could this just be a sprain? Has anyone had experience with breaks? The girls roam the backyard, which isn't very big. Maybe she tripped on something? I don't know. I guess that's more than one question . If anyone has any experience with a limping bird and what the outcome was, I would appreciate hearing about it! I'm not sure if I should wait it out or take her to the vet for some x-rays (she's my pet more than anything). I don't think a vet could necessarily do much- I'd just prefer to know what I'm dealing with. I'm mainly concerned that if I let it go too long it might get worse- if it's something weirder than a sprain or a break. I also don't know if I should confine her to keep her from moving around and making it worse. Not that I'm sure how to do that anyway. Thanks for any help!
