    I noticed one of my chickens is limping and seems to have her backend close to the ground. I don't know if I should take her to the vet or what I should be looking for. I did pick her up and looked at her leg which seemed fine but I don't know what I should be looking for. Any ideas?

    Sounds like bumble foot. Search posts on bumble foot and see if the symptoms match. Its quite a job to lance and clean but can be done successfully.
