My hen has been limping for about a month. Some days are better than others. After two weeks of limping (and after some online research), I started giving her 1/2 of a baby aspirin every day for a week. It worked great. It worked so well that she stopped limping and I couldn't tell which chicken to give it to. So I stopped. And now the limp is back. I'm giving her aspirin again, but I'm worried about the effects of giving it to her long term. Also, the days are getting short enough that it's going to get increasingly difficult to administer medication before and after work.
So what next? Continue with the aspirin? How long is too long? What's a reasonable expectation for a chicken heal?
Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
