    I was holding my Silkie hen this morning (she is about a year old) and I was checking her feet out. I checked her back toe and I think it's broken. Her toe is Straight, but You can move her toe back and forth and it seems to be pretty loose. She does not seem to be in any pain at all. What should I do? Should I make a splint?

    Try posting a photo on here first. Check the same toe on her other foot and see if it behaves in the same way. I've done a lot of chicken worrying for nothing [​IMG]
