Chickens wing turning GREEN

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by chickenlover237, Mar 9, 2015.

  1. One of my white leghorns hurt her wing, I thought she had dislocated or broken it. She lost total movement of it, and today, two days after it happened, I checked on her and her entire wing, from the shoulder is GREEN and I literally mean, Green, grass green. And I don't know what to do! Pics soon to come if I can get them to load...

    I would recommend taking her to a veterinarian. Can you take some pics?
     
  3. There isn't a vet within a four hour drive (that we could find) that can take care of her, as soon as I can get the pictures to load I will post.

    That does look pretty bad. However, that doesn't looks like inflammation from an injury. It looks more like a fungal/bacterial infection. I would try antibiotics or something--not sure.
     
  8. What's strangest is it is her whole wing, but a very defined line on her shoulder, it's localized to just her wing, it doesn't hurt her, but she can still feel on her wing. (I tested this by pinching pieces of skin along her wing) she reacted the same as the other wing.

    I would clean it thuroughly and see what it looks like from there. Defenitly looks like a fungal infection but I had a chicken hurt its toes and its bruise was green but not bright green like that. Get some anti fungal cream and apply it once it's clean and keep the area clean and dry
