    My Uncle Clydie had a one legged rooster. He was the fastest meanest rooster I have ever seen.

    You may want to try using the search function above and search "broken leg" or "splint". I read somewhere here that a man made a splint for a chick using a drinking straw. Not sure about older birds though.
    Best wishes!
