    I have a hen with mildly swollen feet. From the "ankles" down they're a little swollen and pinkish-red in color. She's walking a little funny too - looks like she can't bend all her toes. HELP!

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Can you post a picture?

    What are the temps like there? Day and night?

    What is her housing like?

    Did you check under each foot for signs of bumblefoot?
