    I came home today, and notice two of my chickens had blood on them, and one is limping. I'm thinking the two with blood on them will get better. cause they look fine and are walking around fine, but the one limping has no visual damage on him, but he can't run or fly, just limps around the coop by himself, what could be wrong with him?

    I've had some get hung up in feeder and a door and pulled their legs. You need to give vits and put him/her in a cage by it's self . Where it can rest and heal. I found putting them in a med. dog crate in the run/coop help keep stress down and they go back into the flock easier that way . 2 of mine could not walk at all ,1 dragged her legs behind herself and after a week she ie 100% normal. you would never know she was hurt. I feed scratch and vit/minerals eletrolites and reg. food too. I hope he or she gets better and hope this helps you out. Best of luck and hope for fast recovery!
