My chicken has started limping just after jumping off a high table, does anyone know what it is wrong. I've looked at it, but there is nothing there, just her leg! If anyone knows what has happened please reply!

Thanks

If nothing feels broken, it's likely a sprain. Pen the chicken up with food and water, and just enough room to get out of its own poo. In other words, encourage it to rest and not use the leg much for a few days.
It wouldn't be bumblefoot. Bumblefoot is a staph infection and is easily spotted by looking at the bottom of the foot and between the toes. It doesn't occur from an injury.
