    Hi Raina, it's nice to have you here!

    Sorry to hear Bow is giving you some concern. When you post on the link Yorkshire Coop gave you, it may be helpful to include a photo or two of her feet...that might give the ER members more information to go on. I hope all is ok with her.

    Thanks for joining us!

    G’Day from down under Raina [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope that the folks on the Emergencies & Diseases Forum are able to help you with what ails Bow and that she is OK.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Have you checked the bottoms of her feet to see if anything is bothering her.? if you can take a video you could post that on the ER thread, which would give them a much better picture of her problem.
