    Welcome to BYC. How old is your chicken, and what can you describe about her legs and feet? Are her toes curled, do the legs and wings move, does she move her toes when you touch the bottoms? Doesshesit on ner hocks or elbows? Can you see any swelling or dark spots on either foot pad? Did your chicken get a Mareks vaccine?
