    I have a chicken with her leg broken in two places. She has a splint on now. Anyone know how long it may take to heal?

    Hello - I too have an injured hen - not sure if her legs are broken or merely sprained when she flew into the wire yesterday. Did you take your to the vet or splint it yourself? Thanks withca
