    Hi! I need help with my chicken. She is nearly 9 months old and today I found her with her bone snapped in half and sticking out of her skin in two places. I want to keep her alive because I treat my chickens like pets. But no vets around here will see a chicken. I’m not sure what to do. I put her in a tub with shaving and water and food. I also cleaned her wounds as best as I could but bone is still sticking out. I have also applied vetrecen. Is there anything else I can do? P.S. in the picture it looks dirty but I cleaned it the best I could
