    I have a Chicken named Limpy(in my pic) and she has a bad leg:(,
    I am 13 and had had her since she was born,
    When she was little she couldn't manage on her own so I would spend my day with her helping her and sometimes having to hand feed her but that was ok as I want to help her. Now she can manage on her own but her good leg is getting very bad because she has to put all the presher on it. It is swollen and the scales are falling off (her foot is no longer smooth). What can I do? PLEASE HELP ME SAVE HER!:(:(:([​IMG]

    I'm so sorry! I'm 12 and I got my chickens this spring. I can't imagine how scared you must feel. My neighbor has this same issue, but not to this extent. Maybe you should try to duct tape a sturdy stick or metal pole to Limpy's bad leg.
