    Seems the only time I get to post is when my poor EE gets hurt which is frequent. She survived a dog attack, then in May she broke her leg near the foot. Now she has difficulty walking. When she tries to walk her one leg (good) seems to slide forward and she looses her balance, trying to catch herself by flapping her wings. She is bright eyed and an eager eatter. Is it possible she dislocated her hip? Any ideas?

    Please help

    how old is she? is she at the age of a molt, 18 months? worth a try to give her some vitamin B12/E in her food, seems to help some walking problems, your situation sounds a little different from mine, but could be the same also, sudden inability to walk, balance them selves. also give her some electrolyte solution for strenght, isolate her from the others until she gets better, keep her warm and fed. Good luck
