    One of my chickens appears to have a broken wing. She is otherwise fine: eating, drinking & pooing. Help.

    I'm sorry no one has posted a reply. I don't know what to do, but I've read to wrap the wing close to the body. Please go to search and find posts that will help you.

    If you're sure that it's broken you should wrap the wing with an ace bandage or vet wrap right to the body. Give her a baby aspirin in a gallon of water and make sure that she can't get picked on by the other birds.

    Thank you. It doesn't seem to be broken at the bend, but more at the shoulder, ?dislocated. How long do I leave it wrapped?
