We have a 6 month old RIR. Three weeks ago she come hobblin to me with a broken leg. So I built a sling and put her in it. Now here it is 3 weeks later and we noticed last night that she's now not standing on her other leg. The first leg is still paralyzed I guess because she still has no mobility & still can't clutch anything with it. Now her other good leg has developed a twitch. She just hangs there stretching out her good leg straight back like a nervouse twitch kicking it. Then that causes her to get twisted up, and she then flaps like crazy trying to turn back around. When she could just as easily put her foot/feet on the ground and turn around. So I guess the question is ... is it time to cull? (oh & this is our 8 yr old sons chicken that's why we haven't yet.) So we would have to tell him something.
