    Hey everyone,
    I have a guinea hen with a broken leg. It is not bleeding but it is only hanging on by a small piece of skin. What would everyone suggest? Cutting it off the remainder of the way, clean, and bandage or the humane alternative.

    Hi, sorry to hear about this.

    Is it possible for you to get a picture and upload it onto this thread for everyone to see? I don't have enough information about the break to help you out.
