    Can you post a pic of her leg? Does she put weight on it at all? Is there swelling? Can you tell if it is in a joint or a bone?

    Hayward, Livermore checking in here, I hope she is OK and the others with far more knowledge than I help you out but if it were mine I would put her out of the pain.

    When my girl was attacked by a dog she was limping like crazy from where the dog grabbed her foot and tried to pull her out of the nest box. My father in law who is a vet told me to feel for a break - start at her haunches and run your hand down her leg. If it is broken you will feel a place that moves like it shouldn't. If it isn't broken, you'll just have to wait and see how she does. My Ruby wouldn't put weight on her leg for about 4 or 5 days - then she slowly got better. Now her limp is completely gone. Good luck!!!

    I'm afraid I can't help you on this but I did want to say how much I appreciate the situation you are finding yourself in. I too went down to my coop one morning and found one of the chickens with her leg stuck straight out. I can't emphasize how freaked out I was to see this. I went back up to the house to collect everything I could think of that I might need to "help" my chicken. I was grateful to see upon my return that she had simply gotten stuck in her morning stretch. I think too God might have answered my prayers for help! Whew! Your situation is different from mine I know, but I want you to know it is moments like these that we grow in our maturity. To put the needs of our livestock above our own feelings is part of becoming an adult -gotta say, I'm proud of you!
