Dislocated hock??? Slipped tendon????

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have an intersting one.  Have a 6 month old serama hen and she somehow dislocated her hock joint.  I am like 99% sure that is what it is.  When she limps and you pick her up you can see that leg lower leg faces outward a tad.  I will manipulate it and sometimes I can feel the tendon slip back in place[I am assuming its back in place]  but in a short while she will be limping again.   The hock joint is bigger that the other one. 
Has anyone had any experience with this sort of thing??? I will see what I can do by way of pictures, right now it is OK, but at sometime or another over the course of the evening it will be out again.
BTW...this has been going on for a few days now.......gosh I hope there is enuf info for guesses...LOL
