    Is anyone familiar with chicken staph infections? I have the trifecta of chicken problems with my Wyandotte hen. First a dog attack, now she has started limping and holding her left leg up (suspected staph), and now has gotten lice. I was curious if anyone had ever had a chicken get staph, and if the chicken recovered. It sure seems like one problem after another. I have her inside with a heat lamp, but doesn't seem like we're making much progress..
    Any info is appreciated!

    No, except for bumblefoot, which is a staph infection of the foot.
