    Right above the knee legs seem broken and not able to support bird's weight. Help

    You can split the leg using a popsicle stick and surgical tape. You can also also give the chicken some aspirin dissolved in water if the birds seems like it's in pain.

    I would isolate the chicken in a small place that forces it to stay still.

    Any ideas on how the leg was broken?

    Would someone who knows the ratio of aspirin to water please post it?

    Is the leg broken, or not? Do you have any more information?
