Our six month old Ameraucana is sick in the oddest way. She acts like her feet and legs hurt. This started late yesterday afternoon with the hen laying on her side a lot. She eats and drinks normally but when she walks she crouches down and limps.
She does not seem to have any other symptoms.
Odd. Any ideas?

It might be BUMBLEFOOT. If you have a book about chickens, look up bumblefoot. Good luck. Justice
