    I have a Black Sex Link Hen who is about 6 months of age and appears to be experience pain in one of her feet. She limps and hold the foot up when standing still. Her feet appear normal with know lesions, bumps, scabs, etc. I would post pictures but the leg actually looks normal compared to all my other chickens. Today is day 2 of her limping. She appears to be eating and drinking normally but not as spunky as normal.

    It does not appear to be scaley leg mites or bumble foot.

    Does anyone ave any idea what may be wrong with her or what I can do to help her out?

    Thank you!!!

    Perhaps she just sprained it. I have had the occasional bird limp for a few days, and then whatever it was gets better. I would just watch her for now, if she appears otherwise healthy and eating and drinking normally.
