    There was no injuries I could see other then he couldn't stand the day of the attack wich was yesterday but today he can stand just alittle but the injured leg he can't straighten his foot out !

    Take a pipe cleaner and form t to the foot. and keep him in a small cage with food and water with a wraped leg. So the other chickens dont hurt him. hope he gts better soon!!!![​IMG]

    He just curls his toes in so his foot is kinda of rounded . Do I need to get the foot to spread apart or just the foot to be straight ?

    You need to open it up and straighten it.

    Seems to be getting better ! Can stand alittle but can't walk. I made a small splint but not sure it does much. He did eat some scratch tonight and drank some water.

    Thanks for the replys
