    So sorry to hear about your hen. These things happen. It might help to get her under a brooder lamp, as injuries can cause a bird to go into shock, which makes them very cold. Sometimes the shock kills them long before the injury. Keep the temp up around 80+ degrees. She may heal up if given the opportunity. Good luck with her. [​IMG]

    But...[​IMG] and enjoy your stay!
