    hello all. I had this odd problem last year with a hen of mine.
    * At about this time..........

    So- my little man- born this may has started a horrible limp.
    the foot is in fine shape by the looks......not even an obvious scratch....no missing nails.....does not feel hot anywhere.......they are feed a perfectly balanced diet....and he was never pushed around by the others untill after this limping ........ IS it the cold weather???

    That makes no sense.......!! Maby he is the offspring of that hen who went lame ? She limped around for a while and then
    ended up not useing that leg at all. and died oohhhh, 7 or so months later.
    I just dont understand and I am paranoid that it could happen to my little man [​IMG]
    thanks all for your time.

    He might have jumped off something , landed wrong and gotten a soft tissue injury.
    Sometimes its hard to tell.
