I have a Russian chicken that is slow in going after treats and walks more on her toes. Here legs are orangeish red on the side and her feet are red between the toes. When I throw treats to the flock, she almost gets runover!:rolleyes: I checked her crop and its fine. She seems other wise to be fine. Any suggestions on whats wrong?

She may be low in the pecking order. I have some who won’t come and join the others for treats because the others keep them away. Just keep an eye on her and try to give her a treat when she is alone. My hens and roosters sometimes have reddish legs and feet which can signify fertility in some colors of legs.
