I have an issue with my black leg austrolaups hen. It is limping on one leg. I had two of these hens and about 3 weeks ago I noticed one of them was limping on one leg. I thought she just pulled a muscle or something so I set her up with a quiet spot to rest with plenty of water and food. Well she did not get better, she deteriorated quickly until the eye on the side of her head that cooresponded with the leg she could not used was clouded over and unusable. Finally I had put her out of her misery when when she stopped eating and drinking. Now I am noticing that the other Black Leg Austrolaups is limping today. Does anyone know what this could be? I have 13 other chickens and a rooster that are walking around just fine.
