    I have a dark brahma bantam pullet about 7-9 weeks old and just recently started limping. I have checked her legs and nothing seems to be wrong with them. Any ideas? Thanks

    I am working on the same situation with my light brahma. She refuses to walk, something is wrong with her left leg and I can't see any damage. Good luck!! I hope you find what is wrong. I would suggest isolating her, once the birds see a weak link they start harrassing and pecking on them. Montana's back was bare and they had started on her head by the time if figured out she was really hurt. I have her in a dog crate inside.
