I have a young mille fleur hen who was in her run when a raccoon managed to grab her through the fence and pulled her leg right off. OMG poor bird. I thought she would die either from blood loss or shock, but I bandaged her up in a pressure bandage and she is doing well.
but, now I have a bird with no leg. Not even a stump, which I think I could make a prosthetic for.
does anyone have any experience with a truly one legged bird? Any ideas of how to help her get around?
any ideas would help. I just have a feeling that anything I can strap on to her would come off, so I'm a bit baffled.
She seems amazingly strong and does not seem in pain or distressed at all today! Chickens can sure surprise you with their resilience!
