"Have you heard of bumblefoot?  It is like a wart, because there is a "kernal" that you have to get out..... might wanna give it a google and see if you see some similarities.  It is treatable....  but it is not fun."

Chicken limping

Hi everyone. I've got a question. I have a buff orphington that is barely 8 months old and she is limping on one foot. I checked it and there's no obvious break, blood, or swelling. Her hip doesn't look dislocated nor is her eating, drinking, or pooping any different from normal. She's able to get up into the nesting area just fine and her eyes or feathers don't look any different. None of my other hens have any thing wrong with them. I'm hoping she just sprained it jumping down from the coop…See More
