    Does a slipped achilles tendon hurt? It's been that way for her for a while now, and I'm just watching her limp around at this point. It happened when she was 5 wks, and she's 11 weeks now. She's not growing as large as her sister is, and I'm not sure what to do. She sticks close to the pen pretty much when the others go out and forage. She's my only mottled Java, and so pretty, but I'm concerned that she might be in pain.
