I have only been in this 18 months and this is my first injury. I came home and my dog led me, whining and excited, to a boat propped up next to the barn (Hooray for Anthony the Wonder Dog! I never would have found them if he hadn't told me where they were). Beneath the boat was rolls of fencing, and 2 hens had squirmed in and were helplessly trapped. I was at work all day and they free range, so I have no idea how long they were there. One is fine; the others leg was very tightly caught when I found her and she will not stand on it at all. I have her in a crate and I assume she'll either eventually stand on it or she won't. My questions are: How long do I allow Licorice (my 12 year old's favorite, BTW) rest and convalesce before deciding her leg will not heal? And -- if it DOES heal enough for her to walk, but she limps or drags her foot, will the other Sister Wives then pick on her? Or is that another one of those things that could go either way, and you have to just wait and see? If anyone has dealt with this kind of thing I would appreciate your input. TIA.
