    I need help bycer's i have a blue copper maran hen who got hurt in with some roo's and i need to put her in a sling and i can't find anything pertaining to them in any search. i need to know how to make one and possibly a diagram of one does anybody know where to find info. i need to get her up off the ground she has stopped eating but perks up while holding her straight. she is 6 months old and just about full size so the sling would have to be bigger than a little one.

    thanks,
    ladywolfe

    I would make it like an X but thick in the middle, the top part of the X on either side of her head so she can move her head & neck easily. The center of the X wide enough to support underneath her. The bottom part of the X, you could cut holes for her feet to go through, that would leave her vent uncovered for cleanliness.
