I found my 18 month old bard dragging its foot 4 days ago. Foot slightly swollen but no wound found. Chick unable to walk on the leg as it drags behind her. She has very few feathers on her bottom. Area red/swollen and feathers few near chest bone. I have separated her from the flock. She is eating and drinking a little. I have placed her in a sling and let her out daily but seems it is only getting worse. Her butt appears more swollen and see,s to have a small fluid filled sac. I believe she was plucked by our other chicks prior to separating her. I don't know what to do as this is our first flock. Please help. Thanks
