PLEASE HELP. One of my two month old chickens has injured her leg/hip area. Three days ago I found her laying down and she had difficulty walking. I separated her from the other chickens and she is eating and drinking well. Yesterday when I checked on her, her injured leg was sticking straight out in front of her body (almost like she was doing the splits). I carefully picked her up and inspected the leg which was limp and it seemed to have no broken bones in it, but was loosely hanging from the hip. She doesn't seem to be in a terrible amount of pain but she can no longer walk and continues to stick her leg in front of her body. My vet said she can't give me any help because my chicken isn't considered a "pet". I am a first time chicken owner and I have no clue how to help her.Has anyone ever encountered this problem?? Is her hip dislocated?? Does she have a broken leg?? Please let me know if you have any advice. I could also send a picture of her if that helps! Thank you!
