Limping bantam

Recommended Posts

I have a very lame bantam hen.  The limp has been getting worse for a couple of months and now she struggles to weight bear on it.  She's getting more withdrawn from the flock.  She is 9 years old.  I had her checked by the vet last week, but nothing was apparent.  So I've had her on pain relief since then, but after a week there's no sign of any improvement.  I'm at a stage that I need to consider putting her to sleep but I thought I would try a forum to see if anyone has any ideas I can try.  Many thanks
