    I have 14 three month old pullets. They have been doing great but today I noticed that one was limping.

    I picked her up and didn't feel or see anything wrong with her foot. She is eating and drinking but mostly just sitting down.

    She looks healthy, and others look healthy, they have been together since a day old so not sure if she got hurt, or could be getting a virus?

    Any thoughts?

    Not sure what bumble foot is. I did pick her up and felt her leg, stretched her foot, squeezed all of her toes and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Bottom of her foot looks fine.
