    Hey. Just made my account and I have a feeling I am posting in the wrong section. I have a chicken that is hurt and want to know how to get to a forum that can help. I will post this here anyways just to see if anyone has a thought!

    I have a rhode island red, 2 yrs old that was fine this morning but just went out there and she can not stand on her one leg. Both legs and toes move fine she just can't support herself. This has happened in the past with a silkie and we had to put her down. I don't want to put this one down though. I have her in the house comfortable, eating and drinking fine. My suspicion is one of my ducks got after her but it doesn't seem to be broken. Any suggestions? Much appreciated!

    Thanks so much everyone! I will try to find the injury page and post this. Will keep you posted, we have had her from a chick and she is a spit fire. Would really hate to loose her. Take care! -Amber
