Hey all- I have been reading the posts on broken/sprained legs and got lots of great advice. My hen possibly broke or sprained her right leg/foot yesterday. I felt her legs and they seemed to be the same. If anything, to me her right foot seemed a little puffy in the middle. She just kind of lets the foot lay however with her toes under it at times, looks uncomfortable. But she can push with her leg from her joint (knee) up, but from knee down no pressure. But I don't know if that is b/c the bottom part is sprained or if it's her foot or even both. I put her in a small cage enough for her turn around in and gave water and food. right now she is in my laundry room out of the heat and hopefully where she will get rested. She did not get too excited yesterday so it was easy to splint it. I used popsicle sticks on either side of the leg and then wrapped it snuggly. It just seems like I should put a stick under her foot to keep it straight..but I have not read anywhere that people do that..seems like it would be like a little boot for her, but possibly more comfortable? Not sure. Any suggestions? Also, how often should I check and re-wrap the leg? How long should she be in her cage? I figured a couple of weeks to let it heal and then see how she is doing?
