  6. Many years ago on one of the Hairy Bikers series they where in South America. Both Si & Dave were doing a street Tango & Dave Myers wasn't too bad. Sue
  7. Hi chickenlady This sound the same as what has happened to my Suki. Whit Bank Holiday went out for the day & when we got back Suki was limping (holding her foot out in front of her). I gave her the once over & couldn't see anything wrong but after a few days it wasn’t getting any better. Off to the vets we went. He couldn't find anything wrong so gave her ant inflammatory liquid, and an antibiotic jab, since then she has been broody twice & had a heavy moult. Her foot /leg is still the same I have noticed one of her toe nails has crumbled away it kind of went soft and has gone altogether now. I have treated for scaly leg mite just on the off chance. Just last week she started laying again but she is getting badly bullied by one of my other hens and she ended up with a nasty cut to her head. (Bully in now in a cage until she learns to behave) Not sure if this is of any help Sage
  8. Well done everyone My nephew has got A* for the 4 exams he took a year early . Sage
  9. Can anyone offer me any advice please? 5 weeks ago Suki went broody on me. On Sunday 26th May all was fine in the morning she got removed out of the nest as usual & the family went out for the day. When we returned I let the girls out into the garden & noticed Suki was limping. Her broodiness was getting worse as was her limp so in the broody cage she went (I did sit the cage on an old board as she was struggling standing on the cage) I was hoping the confinement would restrict her movement & help the leg get better. We ended up at the vets but he couldn't find anything wrong, Suki had several jabs to reduce inflammation antibiotics and a pain killer. Week later she was back at the vet for the same. Her foot/leg is not getting better, when she moves the toes are curled up and she hops dragging the foot. I was beginning to think Marek’s but her eyes are clear and bright her shin looks good and she is eating & drinking well. Well today she has laid an egg after a 5 week rest. I’m totally confused. Sorry it a bit long winded. Don’t know what to do for the best Sage
  10. Suki came out the sin bin last night after 3 day & 3 nights . Straight up the ladder on the nest . She sat on an icepack for 3 hour by this time the icepack was quite warm. I put her back in the sin bin last nigth. I will try again with the ice pack this evening when I get in from work. This morning Cinderella has joined her in the sin bin I now have 2 grumpy hissing girls Sage
  11. A chicken can go off colour for a few days if they have a softy on the way. Hope she picks up . Sage
  12. Suki came out of the run at 100 miles an hour as usual yesterday but when she stopped she was limping then spent quite a while stood on one leg. I had a good look and cannot see any obviose signs of anything wrong. She is eating and still laying tail is up and looks generally well. This morning she is still limping, my question is do I leave her in the WIR with the others and hope she will rest it or do I take her in the kitchen and put her in a cat box for a few day to ensure she rests her leg. Sage
  13. Deluded sick people. My thought are with this young persons family, friends and all our armed forces. Sage
