Do I splint it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My chicken is limping on one foot. She will put weight on the bad one but i can't see anything wrong with it other than the middle toe? Claw? What do you call it? The middle toe on her foot looks a bit limp almost like it's broken. She will still walk on it although gingerly. Should i splint that toe with a popsicle stick or something? I know those toes are supposed to bend so i'm not sure what the right answer is. TIA!

since i'm not seeing any replies so far, may I?


my story about limp toes:

my wyandotte hen and her hybrid rooster offspring have or had big old limp middle digits; the roosters (being a bit heavier) developed sores on the underside which infected and became bumble-toe; she's still going strong, the roosters are gone;

I would splint it just to be sure because you don't know if it is broken or not.

This is my Easter egger and she's already the bottom of the pecking order. I just don't want them picking on her as a Result. sad.png
