I am a new chicken keeper with regards to hatchling's and growers, but I do have 2 older hybrids that are 2 1/2 yrs old now, had since POL :) Hobby chicken keeper :)
I am always seeking info and help, and am happy to offer any advice that I can in any instance.
I am desperate for some help with my 6wk old hamburgh. Her left hock joint bends inwards, she also has curly toes, but the hock is swollen and very warm to touch. I have had her in a sling this afternoon, but taken her out at bed time so she doesn't panic in the night and do herself a further injury. She has had aspirin this pm, dosed to her body weight, and she is eating and drinking fine. Is there any way I can help with her leg? Splint it? bandage it straight? Here is a pic of her... it looks so uncomfortable for her.
Any advice pls? Many thanks in advance.
