    Has anyone had a chicken with a broken leg go on to roost again? My hen broke her leg above the "knee" joint about 3 months ago. It seems to be healed pretty well, a little crooked. She runs/hops along and is now scratching again. I have her in my house at night in a cage and out in the run during the day. I worry if she can't roost and a predator gets in the pen, she'll be the first to go. Any good news or will she a house chicken forever? [​IMG]

    She should be alright as long as the healing process was successful. The broken bone has healed by now so she should be fine.
