I came home from work yesterday to find my RIR Ruby with a broken leg. She was filthy and I know that she must have been having a dust bath in her favorite spot, right in front of the entrace to the horse/sheep shelter. Someone must have stepped on her. Took her to the vet who splinted her leg. Problem is that it's broken very high up on the leg and vet said that is a hard spot to heal. Anyway, she's now in the house. Eating and drinking fine but panting alot. Vet said to keep in inside for at least a month with the splint. Has anyone had any luck rehabilitating a chicken with this kind of injury? I thought I'd at least give her a chance but if I think she's suffering, I'll put her out of her misery.
