Hurt leg

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My 2 week old pullet has an injured leg... I noticed that she was limping when she was walking, I'm not sure if the other chicks jumped and landed on her to hurt her leg but I separated her from the box and have just been keeping an eye on her to hope she would get better. She hasn't improved any, she still eats and drinks but she doesn't walk on the leg she has her claws curled up and the leg up to her chest. Any suggestions?? Or is it to late to help my chick sad.png

Do you have any photos?

You can try poultry vitamins with B vitamins make sure it has Riboflavin (Vitamin B12) in them.

You may also want to look at the link below it addresses some treatments for different types of leg problems that chicks may have.

No I do not have any right now. The leg does look Alittle, but barely, more swollen than the other one but it just won't walk on it. You can tell its stiffer than the other one too.

@Wyorp Rock

There is a picture of her leg. As you can tell her claws are curled up and she doesn't lay on that side of her body

Poor little sweetie.

You could try the vitamins and tape her foot. Some photos on this link, but more in depth instructions are in the link provided earlier.
