I have a young hen with a problem. My son brought her in as she was not walking properly. I though it was a broken toe so I splinted what I thought was the broken toe. I soon saw that all toes were involved so I made a boot and kept the splints on. Still no improvement. Took her outside as she is going downhill. wont walk. brought her back in and took everything off. I manipulated the hip joint and as I thought it isnt dislocated (altho no xray). Its possible the hip is broken. What then? She has been in my main bath for a week which I dont mind at all but is there a way to save her? I dont think she is in pain but I dont want her to suffer either.
here is the link to view her in action.
