    I noticed one of my chickens was limping around four days ago and thought maybe she just jumped from a perch wrong and that it would get better. Now she's laying down more and the limp is not better. I'm not sure what I should do. If anyone has an helpful information it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there, I'm going through the samething right now and was afraid she might have Bumble foot. Took her to the Vet and was told she didn't have it and that she might have sprained it? The Vet suggested I keep her in the run for a week or two and see if that helps. My hen has improved but not 100% yet. Hope your's get's better soon.
