One of my hens has a broken wing. What should I do.
I'ts definitely broken.
Where is the break? Depending where it is you can try to set it in the proper position and then fold the wing in a natural position by the body, and wrap the wing with vet wrap. Keep it that way for a few weeks till it heals.
I'm not sure if I can.
It's the first bone in her wing. Near the elbow joint.
You can try a figure 8 bandage around the wing with the final wrap around the body to give it support. leave on for 2-3 weeks. If the chicken freaks out from the bandages you'll have to allow the bone to heal on its own. If the chicken has an open fracture you can either spend the money to have the bone pinned, or amputate the wing.
I hope she does well for you.
I've bandaged her wing to her side. Just hope it heals properly.
