I have an adult hen with an apparent leg/hip. I noticed the problem about 4 days ago. Her leg sticks straight out in front of her and lays flat on the ground. She is unable to put any weight on it. I moved her to a bunny hunch to isolate her from the rest of the chickens. She will let me pick her up and tuck the leg underneath her into the correct position. However, as soon as she tries to move anywhere the leg ends up sticking straight out.
I'm not sure what if anything can be done for her? Should I try and pop her leg/hip back into the socket? Again, I'm not 100% sure this is the problem. I'm worried I will hurt her worse be trying.
If anyone has any suggestion on how I can properly diagnose the problem and what treatment if any I should attempt, I would be extremely grateful.
