I have a 1 year old ginger bantam. Very healthy and beautiful little hen. About 4 days ago she started limping, I checked her foot and it was fine (no sign of injury or bumble foot). As the days progressed she wouldn't use that leg, now it hangs and her foot drags when she walks. She lives in a small flock of 4 other bantams and 2 standard laying hens, no one picks on her and she is eating just fine. I do NOT think this is Mareks (long story but I think I have had Mareks in my small flock and this isn't the same). She eats and is very alert, and manages to get on the 6' roosting pole at night but her leg seems well..."dead" at the moment. She had a band on that leg from the breeder, it didn't seem tight but I cut it off nevertheless. She is very alert and this does not seem to be a coordination/neurological problem. No obvious signs of injury, no obvious swelling, I can handle the foot fine BUT she complains if I touch her upper leg/hip. What should I do? Is this common? What is the best treatment?
