    I have a chicken that's been limping when she's running, but walks and does everything else normally (see thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1127852/chicken-limps-when-running-help#post_17411064 )
    I gave her half a baby aspirin in a raisin in an effort to solve the problem today at around 7:40 pm. What is the dosage for baby aspirin? Is what I gave her too much, or too little? Should I continue this aspirin treatment? How often should I administer it? Are there any risks of giving this 81 mg aspirin to my hen? Sorry for the abundance of questions, but these are pet hens and I love them very, very much. I'm super worried about her right now. Any ideas right now would be great. Thanks!

    Edited to add: How long does it take for aspirin to start working?
