    One of my 4 month old hens has a half of her wing hanging down, it seems that only the lower portion of the wing is Broken/Sprained.


    I am thinking about taking the wing and placing it in its "original" position and then placing a bandage around the wing up against the main part of the body it to keep it in place.

    Once the bandage is on I'll keep it that way for a week and then check on it.


    Before I do this I would appreciate any questions, comments, or concerns, before I do this.
