wonder if anyone can cast some light on this problem? The flock consists of a rhode island rock (Aida),a bovan goatline (Bg) and a bovan blacktail (Bt!). For about a month and a half now Bt has been struggling with persistant lameness. She isn't eating and foraging like the other two girls. This week I've had to resort to lifting her out of the coop as I'm wondering if she would eat at all if i did'nt. Read on the forum about leg paralysis which can be treated with crushed vit B tablets, so started her on that yesterday, thinking it can't do any harm to try. She's lost some weight but still looks healthy, doing an awful lot of resting while the other two are grubbing about in the soil. Thought she was laying (bought p.o.l. nearly 3 mths ago) but have changed my mind about that, her comb is nowhere near as red as her sisters. Doing all the usual stuff like checking her vent, making sure she is still eating (her ladyship desires mainly porridge and a few greens!) but obviously going on a bit long to be life threatening.She's never shown a sign of injury. Did watch her closely this morn (again!) and it appears that when she walks she's lifting her right foot very high and not contracting the claws when it's in the air, so obviously not roosting. The foot will contract if she is plonked on the perch, but then she wobbles about a lot like it's hard to balance and can't wait to get down. Even wondered if she's gone broody! Worming today just to eliminate something else, but her sisters are fine. Help!
