I found one of my girls this morning with a string tightly drawn around her leg. She seemed okay yesterday but today she was just standing on one leg keeping the other tucked up.
The string was through the leg on 3 sides and flush with the leg on one, she was not gripping with the injured leg.
I was able to get the string cut off today, however I'm not sure what the future of the leg will be.
I've cleaned the area as best I could with iodine and Veterycin however I'm not sure exactly how to support an injury to the leg like this.
I'm checking the rest of the flock to make sure, it looks like she found twine somewhere while roaming.
Any thoughts on how to support the leg or if amputation may be required?
Any help would be appreciated!
