woke up this morning with a sick or injured pullet. She limps when she walks and prefers to stand puffed up with her head tucked in sleeping, her tail is down, and she mostly holds th one leg up. Felt the leg and it is a little warm up near the joint. She's drinking and eating fine. We seperated her so the others wouldn't start picking on her. Any suggestions on what the problem may be or what we should do about it? Already put some tape on the leg for support, I figured that wouldn't hurt anything. I'm hoping she just needs to let it rest so it will heal. She was fine yesterday. I wonder if she landed wrong coming out of the roost this morning.
