    Hello everyone! I'm new with chickens so I'm sort of freaking about my chickens foot. I was watching them outside and I noticed the one limping and when I walked over I saw her foot. Im not sure what could have happened but I hope it's nothing bad. I feel terrible about its foot and I hope it can heal. Thank you everyone![VIDEO][​IMG]

    The foot looks sprained or injured, and bruised. It should heal in a few weeks. Make sure that she is getting to food and water. She probably shouldn't be jumping on and off a roost. Sometimes placing them in a cage or dog crate with food and water, and keeping them with the flock is a good way to force rest of the foot.
