    Hello Chicken Lovers,
    My darling Rhode Island Red's middle toe is super bent, nearly 90 degrees. I've been advised to straighten the toe and make a split from surgical tape and something hard. I've quarantined her and we're about to splint her tonight. Any advice on how long I should keep her in the split? I'll change the bandage every few days to keep it clean.

    Thanks!!
