    A few days ago i noticed one of my Black Copper Marans limping, then not hardly doing much of anything, Legg appeared to be ok, and she was still eating and drinking so I figured she just sprained it or something, then yesterday I noticed another one doing it, and agin, out of a 25 bird mixed floch, its only my Bcm's.. Then today I picked them both up to investigate, and found both of the birds to have 1 swollen, off colored foot, accompanied by what looks to be tottally deformed feet?? When just a few days ago they were doing fine? They almost look infected kind of?? I will get some pics up tonight or tomorrow.. If anybody has any idea what this may be PLEASE comment and help me get this under c ontroll!! Btw, my entire flock is 18 weeks old.. Thanks!!

    Pictures would REALLY help. Does it have a black plug within any of the swelling?

    Good luck...hope this bump helps you out but they may need pictures.
