    Hi all, I have a hen with a broken leg. We splinted it and it started turning colors after about 24 hours. I figured maybe the bandaging was too tight so we took it off and re bandaged and splinted it. Left it on for 2 weeks as advised by several videos. We took the bandage off today and her foot appears to be dead. She hops around on the other foot. Does not appear to be on pain..... what do I do?

    Welcome to BYC. So sorry about your hen’s foot. She may be able to survive with one working foot.
