    I have my chicken in a cat carrier in the house he has hurt his leg somehow. I went away over the weekend and had my grandparents take care of him before I left I was working his leg everyday by massaging it my grandparents did not do that with him this weekend now one leg sticks out in front of him is that a sign that it became stiff??? Should I just start massaging it again?? Anyone have any ideas?

    keep massaging it and try to make a brace out of wire for it so it can try to walk if that does not work he may not make it.
