: ( I am rather sad... we bought a new hen about 6 weeks old, she doesnt lay eggs at the moment. Yesterday she was running like a twister and in the afternoon she started limping from her right leg. I grabbed her and noticed a lesión (like a bloody bruise) and her shank was swollen. I thought she may have hurt herself from jumping around in our backyard, so I patched the injury; however, today she is laying with her bad foot resting and also she has her eyes closed most of the time breathing from with her beak open . Her alertness remains the same but she looks sick. Her feces are also lime-greenish liquid color, not normal from the rest of our chickens. She lives with a rooster and another hen, these two are healthy, which I am afraid they may get whatever virus the ill hen may have. Any ideas? Thank you in advance!
