Broken joint in toe? *pics*

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My 18-months hen Renfield is having trouble with one foot. She walks ok, but if she tries to run she starts limping and stumbling. One of the joints in her toe looks bruised and swollen compared to the match on the opposite foot - is it a break? She's in moult at the moment, I don't know if that has any bearing.

My guess is that is is a broken or sprained toe, especially since that looks like a bruise above the joint. Can you check the other foot and leg joints in both feet for swelling, just in case it could be an infectious problem? There is not much treatment for a sprained or broken toe--it will probably heal in a couple of weeks without treatment.

You can try to build such support facility, to support the broken toe. (Sorry about spelling errors in the photograph! Where it says type it is adhisive tape!)
