    Give her a nice soak in a warm tub of water. Good warm for a half hour or so helped mine. Sometimes it will help her to relax more. This should get you started and maybe someone else can offer more....just don't break it inside her.

    No luck. Tried the warm water, but it didnt help. Let her dry over night in the house then put her back in the coop. she is still eating and doing all the regular chicken things, she just cant get up on the perch. will let you know !!!!
