hello y’all!
My old hen Cleo has been showing signs of arthritis for a little while now limping, pain in legs, swollen hocks, and trouble walking. I am not sure it is arthritis but that is what I guess. Any other ideas? Also her legs used to be bright yellow now they are pale white yellow.

How old is she? Can you get some good pictures of her feet, and her hocks? If there is swelling in her hocks and her ankles there could be a chance of having MS or mycoplasma synovitis, an infection that affects the joints. Have you checked her footpads for bumblefoot scabs as well? Has she ever sprained a leg and limped?

She is 6 years old. I don’t know if she has sprained a leg. Also I have to help her off the roost in the morning.


Here is her legs and feet this morning
