    My hen has a possible broken toe. Is there anything that I can do to help her get around better? Her toe is very swollen. Thanks

    Ouch poor girly.

    I would keep her in a kennel to limit her movement for a bit. This way she does not have to be bumped and pushed when eating or drinking.

    After the swelling goes down, you might make a splint for her [​IMG]
