    I have a silkie that has sustained some sort of leg injury 10 days ago. She has been resting and comes out of her cage in the late eveings for a little bit. Yesterday was 10 days that she has not been able to walk correctly. Well, last night I took her out fresh water and food and she actually made 4 steps forward to the food with out throwing her wings up and tipping to the side. (BIG YEAH FOR LUCY!!) My question is: How long does it normally take for this sort of thing to heal up? I am also not sure how much I should push her to move- I do not want to the muscles to start to atrophy from her not moving.

    Thanks Bunches,
