    Well they started to fly a bit too far so we clipped there wings today.
    After we clipped the second hen my wife gave her a slight toss a few feet off the ground she did a bit of a face plant as she didnt have the wings to lift......

    After than she would not stand for a few.
    Now she walks around but not well and has trouble getting over obstacles. doesnt seam to be a certain leg.

    Is she just bruised?

    Hope it will go away my wife feels horrible.

    Hope so maybe a strain, if you don't think a leg is broken. [​IMG] Hello, from the Big Bear mountains of Ca. Glad you found us. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeh it doesnt seem to be a leg issue almost like a back or neck strain.

    Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else and if it passed with time.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yikes! Hope it's not too bad...if she's limping around this long, though, I would start to think something really is seriously wrong...Good luck!!!

    Quote:I'm sure people have had this happen. you could put her in a dog crate and let her rest and see if she is better in a day or two, if not give the legs a thorough look. [​IMG]
