No eggs yet. None of this hatching (9 chicks) are laying. Time expectation for this is October.
No exposures to any new chickens. They have a large area to roam, but are not "free range" There are no other chickens in the immediate area.
Wings are tight and can flap, neck is straight. If there's a way to send it, I could take a picture if it would help.
Beak feels like other beaks in the coop. Not soft.
A little tough to determine that one... Should I put her in a private cage and wait for evidence? I'm not seeing anything "abnormal" in my coop, where she spends all her time now.
Her feces is "perfect"....
Is it possible that she "blew out" her knee?
Her right leg is acting normal, but she is "standing" on her drumstick base.
Thank you for your thoughtful answer. Getting some Tylan today, just in case.
