Howdy! Im new to the forum and kinda new with chickens. I have a 4 month old frizzled...hen I think that is having leg troubles. It kinda seems like it hyper extended the leg would be my guess. It still can move it. It hobbles around on it. When it eats it points it straight back and stands solely on the other leg. I felt each leg and the feel the same. All the vets are closed right now and I am trying to avoid the emergency vet call. Any help would be great. thank you

It has been my experience with leg injuries that I rarely have to get involved with them in any way. I like to take the "wait and see" approach. This has served me well as all the injuries (including a fracture) have healed on their own given enough time and rest.

Let us know how she does. Good luck.
