    My hen cut her leg at just about the knee and we put some of the pruple lotion spray on it. She is now refusing to put any weight on the leg. What should we do? It has been about 5 days since she cut it. I dont know how she cut it. It has not affected her laying. Should I isolate her from the Tom until she gets better?

    I had the same issue after a weasel attack. How deep is it? Is there blood flow to the lower leg? In my case I wrapped it with a dressing after treating with peroxide. The leg ended up dying from the damage so I amputated and now she is super.
