    Hello

    could anyone help please. My Faverolle, who is about 5 years old,has gone lame in the past few days. her foot is completely curled up and she can't walk. No sign of raised scales or black scabs so don't think its Bumblefoot or scaly leg mite. She is eating a little bit and drinking but no sign of poo. She seems quite bright in herself.

    A couple of photos to illustrate. Thanks for any help

    Looks like she might have stepped on something sharp / poisonous

    Looks like bumble foot, She needs antibiotics to sort it out.

    Hi Bev
    We never found out was wrong with her. We put her in a big crate in the kitchen for a week and she gradually just got better. She is back to normal now.
