    [​IMG] Not sure what to tell you about the swelling . pictures will help there is an emergency thread but I've not used it . so can't tell how to get there but someone will tell you how . keep a close eye on it . have you checked for injury . a small cut can get infected and become a big problem. look for that. good luck with her

    Hi Tracey and welcome to BYC from another northerner, via Kenya - glad that you have joined us. I hope that other members are able to help you out with your little one.

    More generally, the Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken.

    You can also join your national thread - "UK members, please say Hi" - this will put you in contact with other UK members.

    The members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
