I have a very special pet chicken named Leibi who was attacked by a dog yesterday. She appeared fine but then this morning she got up with a swollen and bruised ankle that she doesn't want to put weight on. I'm going crazy here. I just moved to a small town in Costa Rica from a big city in Chicago and Leibi is all I have. Her sister was stolen last week and we're still heartbroken about that and I'm getting another chicken for her but I haven't been able to get it yet. I took her to the only vet for hours but he wasn't any help and just laughed and said to eat her. Leibi doesn't like anything better than hiking in the jungle and I'm worried she won't be able to do that ever again. She's only a month and a half, about, and her legs are so tiny I couldn't use a popsicle stick to splint it. It's also right at the bend of her foot- her ankle- so I'm not sure if that's the best thing to do. She's being a trooper about the entire thing and not complaining but I'm sure it hurts. Could I mash up a little tylenol and put it in her daily banana? Also, she likes eating drips of my banana and milk smoothy but I'm worried the dairy will upset her, but if her ankle is broken maybe the calcium will help. Basically, what to I do with a chicken who may or may not have a broken ankle? Help!
