This morning one of my 10 week old chickens has a bad limp and can barely walk. She seems alert and fine otherwise. Can someone help me to work out whether this is disease or whether is a broken bone. I will try and upload a video

Upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo with a link here. Is she putting weight on the leg or holding it up? Can you look for a bumblefoot scab on the footpad, or any redness, swelling, cuts, or green bruising on the leg. Was she vaccinated for Mareks disease? Do you have any roosters or cockerels who might have jumped on her?

Can you post any pictures, videos uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo, and give a few more details, such as age? Has she been eating and drinking?
