So this curious girl went through the fence with our speckled Sussex and got hurt. The Sussex looked like she was in bad shape so I isolated and took care of the wounds. She’s fine now. This girl only looked like she had a tiny nick on her leg and scrape on her back. Those both healed quick and she looked fine. We left for a week on vacation and had them looked after. When I came back her leg looked like this. She’s walking and putting weight on it but what will happen as she gets bigger? Can I fix it? Any advise would be great!!!!
That looks like a valgus deformity. I believe it’s often caused by a vitamin deficiency, I’m not sure which tho. You can look up valgus deformity or VVD in chickens.
