    my lil bantam hen has been limping for a lil while and I just thought it was [email protected] first but now K have noticed she still is and I didn't know what to do. But on the leg that she is limping on, it has a bump that is white, like a lump that seems like it might be a problem w/ her bone, not a disease bump thing, Please Help.[​IMG]

    Can you please take a photo and post it? Others might be able to better help you. Sounds like infection though, and she likely needs immediate help.

    Some hens have a bump where a spur develops on a rooster. Is her bump in that spot?
    Do you see any sign of injury on the sole of her foot?
