    About a month ago, my hens escaped their run and one of them injured a wing. It hung to the ground and she was stepping on it but didn't seem in pain. We wrapped it with vet wrap and kept her isolated in the garage for 3+ weeks. It seemed to be healed, maybe a little crooked so we've slowly integrated back into the flock. Everyone is getting along find but her wing is dragging the same way again. Any advice? I'll try to get a picture..

    I've never had this before but, i would put some antibiotic ointment on it and clean it, if its just her feathers AND its getting in her way trim, otherwise if its not causing and defects then leave it alone, it happens!
