Hi there, we had a 7 week old chick get hung up in some avian netting. She hung there by her wing for about an hour before we found her. She is eating and drinking, but her wing is hanging down. is there something I can do at home to help it heal so she has better use of it in the future? Thanks

She may have injured it, or suffered some nerve damage. I am not an expert on wrapping broken wings in a figure eight bandage, but there are some good links to read about that by doing a search here or if you Google " fixing a broken bone in chickens." You could leave it alone, and just watch it to see if it improves.
