Need help with foot problems- Seabright's stiff feet

    Originally there was an injury (a scrape on the seabrights right leg). She started favoring the other foot when that one appeared to swell. Now she doesn't like to walk on either leg. I am wondering if the second foot (her left) became frostbit. Do we need to cull her or will she get better. She used to be very active and now doesn't move much. Anything we can do?



    The toes don't curl. They are very stiff.

    I brought it in the house. Its toes are stiff like a board. She cannot walk on them. Any suggestions on what to do? Can she be saved?

    Oh, what a strange situation... I wish I knew what was causing that, it looks so uncomfortable. [​IMG] I hope someone on here can help, and best of luck with your girl. [​IMG]
