I came out to the coop this morning to let the chicks out for some grass and my Blackie couldnt seem to walk. Upon closer examination, it looks like her leg is broken at, or right above the ankle. you can move it around where the other leg doesnt flex.
We think she got it stuck in the fencing or something. The chickens are in a coop and run overnight.
it is possible that its dislocated? there was a little blood- tiny bit really and it doesnt seem to hurt her. If she needs to move, she just hops on her other leg and tucks the broken one up. I read some other threads on here and splinted it with two shish-kabob sticks and some tape.
My worries are, what if its dislocated? Whats with the blood? and what if I wrapped it too tight?
also, she is isolated, but i think she is getting really lonely. should we put her in a coop within the coop?
here are some pics from this morning.
