    We have a 5 mo. old Polish/Black Star cross (Blue [​IMG] ) who's been limping for the better part of 2 weeks now. We've checked her leg and foot and the only thing we find is one scale that's a bit lifted right above her foot. No bugs or anything on her or anyone else in the flock. I did give her a dose of Arnica yesterday which seemed to help but she's still limping. Could anybody have any ideas? She hasn't fallen or anything else we can think of. Thanks in advance!!

    We aren't sure if she fell off a roost or something. She's still young enough that the roosters aren't bothering her so it couldn't be that. We're wondering if it might be higher up or maybe she did fall & hurt it that way.
