Sick chicken

we are extremely worried about our bantam chicken. We have had her for 18 months and for all of those months she has struggled to walk. She was picked on by our other chickens so we created a new home for her. She has become better and try’s very hard to walk around. She could get herself around enough as she had to. In the past few days her walking has become worse and small sores have grown all over her feet. They are now scabs and we are wondering what to do????!

    sorry to hear your little bantam is poorly
     try this link for lots of tips and info on feet and leg problems -
     id be afraid of the sores turning to bumblefoot which can take ages to clear so a trip to the vet for antibiotics may be in order.
    let us know how you get on
