HELP - new chick with broken foot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My hen hatched 3 eggs a few days ago and another hen killed one chick and was after another. The chick is ok, except her foot looks to be almost amputated. I tried to splint it but when I put the chick back it with its mother, the mother pulled off the splint.

 

What should I do? Remove the foot or splint it and care for it on my own?
