    Hi all,

    One of my 14 week old Buff Orpington Gals was walking very strangely yesterday.

    She was sitting under the coop which has plenty of room and came out when I called the girls. But she was walking like she was still sitting.... [​IMG]

    She was kind dragging her tummy on the ground. This continued for a few minutes untill I was able to get in there and pick her up.

    Nothing appeared out of the ordinary..... I stretched out each leg and they both seemed fine. I put her down and she walked normal!

    What was that about?? [​IMG]

    Anyone else seen this before?

    Definately scared me a bit!

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks,

    Maybe she just was cramped from laying that way? Did she do it again? How is she today?

    She seems fine today. Someone is making some louder than normal sounds today tho.

    I haven't been able to figure out who?

    I just had them all out while I cleaned their house and run and she was walking just fine.

    Cramped huh?? I could by that! Weird tho! [​IMG]

    Thanks!
