    Wow I am having a bad chicken week :(

    My rooster has bumblefoot and I just sequestered him last night and been soaking it.

    But today I notice a beautiful hen has a drooping wing. No blood or protrusions..and she is eating and drinking and scavaging fine. At what point do you decide to wrap a wing or just let it be? She probably did it last night or this morning jumping down from her nesting spot maybe.
