bird with useless leg

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by CochinBrahmaLover, Feb 18, 2012.

  1. So Ihop our lttle brahama has a leg that she just doesnt use, she hops around sorta but refuses to use it. She definitanly has the will to live, she eats and bites the water dropping voraciously, and I really want her to live. Any ideas how too? Could I tape like a Q-tip to her leg and maybe it will help? Please help! THANKS
