    Marion, oh
    I just purchased my first 6 chickens on Sunday. I have one that has began limping rally bad yesterday. I'm not sure if one of the others step on her or what happened. What should I do for her. They are only about 9 days old

    Have you examined her foot/leg to see if any obvious problems - like a sore, cut, etc? Does she react like it is painful to touch . Did she fall /get dropped?
