[/IMG] To summarize, she was the survivor of an attack that left one hen dead, had a large number of feathers missing on her hind end and near the affected leg. Above the bone that runs parallel the wing on that side was one small puncture, but no bleeding and that has healed by now, but it was purple (bruised) all along the top of the bone. Initially she didn't move the leg at all but now can move the lower portion as much as she wants but can't seem to (or afraid to) move the leg the rest of the way forward and walk on it or use it for support. She has continually improved since the attack a month ago but we are worried she will be forever crippled. Can't afford a vet, not intended for meat and my wife couldn't bear to do it anyway, so...advice?
