Hi - I read some other threads about limping chickens, and now I'm a bit freaked out. This morning I let our 3 chickens out of their run to scratch around in the yard. When I sent toward the feed bin, they came running like they always do, but one was limping while running. She now limps around. She's not laying down, and she does scratch with that foot, but she is definitely limping. She is impossible to catch though, so I haven't been able to look at her foot other than when she holds it up. My questions are - 1) if she's that mobile that I can't catch her, should I be as worried as I am? 2) any tricks to catching her? 3) if I can catch her, how can I hold her still to look at her foot? I'm worried more than usual because we are leaving the country for 2 weeks. A neighbor is coming over every other day to check on them, but if something is really wrong (like in the thread where they eventually had to euthanize the chicken), I don't know what to do. btw, the vet who will see chickens doesn't work Mondays, and I can't take off from work Tuesday. We leave the country early Wednesday. Thanks!
