This morning found my fav hen hanging upside down

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

We had a huge wind storm last night here in California.  The wind grabbed my large Brahma hen.  Her feet were caught in the medal grid on top of an air conditioning sustem. I think her legs or hip might be broken.  She cant stand really, but for a minute and whines.  She is sitting down now, and resting inside. I love her so much, she hasn't started laying yet.  She has bllod, and a yellow subsance near her butt area. I will clean her in a bit after she relaxs. It must have been terrifying to be stuck upside down all night not able to move :(

This is Eira, my Brahma, who was just getting close to laying. I hope she will recover and lay for me eventually

Awwwwe. You need to take her to te vet to get X-rays. That's really all you can do with bone issues like that. Other than that, keep her warm and nurse her back to health. Good luck!!!!
Hopefully someone wih more knowledge and experience on this will come along.
