Ex bat limping

Post by em_emma » 06 Jul 2013, 16:55

Hi,I'm a novice hen keeper and am hoping someone can advise me. We got 2 ex bats 5 days ago. After keeping them in their own hutch for 2 days, I let them out in the garden for a few hours every day. Everything was fine, but when I got them out today, 1 is limping a lot, holding her foot up when she's stood still. There is no obvious sign of injury and they haven't been seen trying to sort out their pecking order. Anyone know what's going on?
