Hello all, I have a Dominique who is 36 weeks old, it is now December and she stopped laying eggs about 1-2 ago. Around that same time, I thought I noticed a slight limp when she ran, but didn't see it when she walked, so didn't think much of it. She is my most adventurous lady, always escaping through fences in our yard and flying up onto things like the bird bath. I have also noticed over the past week or so that she has been losing feathers, there aren't any bald spots, but I figured she was starting to molt for the first time (is that normal for December?). The other three chickens don't seem like they are plucking the feathers out, because I see her shake her body and a feather will come out. So, today I noticed she really was limping and favoring her other leg. Horrified, I took her inside and kept her in for an hour or so, debating what to do. I can't see anything unusual about the leg/foot, but I am also a new chicken owner and don't have much experience. I already saw another chicken try to intimidate her today, so I really didn't want to keep her away from the flock as she is small and am worried about reintegration issues. So, I put her out in the run, so at least she was around the others, then I lowered the roosting bar and took out the other things they fly up on so she wouldn't be tempted. I put them all in, watched, no bulling, and closed them in the coop for the night. What do I do? She is losing feathers, stopped laying, and now has a significant limp. She hated being on her own in the house, and I also don't want her to be in pain. She is my absolute favorite chicken. Could it just be a sprain? Thank you!
