disslocated knee i think???????

  1. lily12
    I think my chicken Gertrude has dislocated her knee after a fox tried to grab her yesterday but im not sure how to tell.her knee is bigger then the other one and feels boney.She either limps badly or hops about. She still eats and drinks fine and acts completely normal and doesn't seem to be in any pain she just has trouble walking. When she stands she rested gently on it or keeps it above the ground and stands on one leg.She also has two bit mark on her back which don't seem to cause her any pain or problem.
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.[​IMG]

    We have a hen who has a broken leg and we separated her from the flock to heal a little then we took her
    back in and she still limps she's at the bottom of the pecking out but she's not in pain and is alive.
