    I looked at her legs n claws today. Her rt. leg seems to b OK. But she is not gripping my fingers with her claw. I splinted her middle claw with Q- tips. ( it seemed that was the one that made her pull away when I messed with them) She is still eating n drinking n she laid an egg today so that's good. If her claw is broke how long do I leave the splints on?:/
