    My hen has a high broken leg and the vet folded her leg up and put a bandage on holding the leg next to her body. But she keeps climbing out of it. I don't know how to keep it on her. Any ideas?

    Poor girl, could you use duct tape (clip feathers maybe to make it stick) to tape the leg where you want it, and then a full body stocking type thing to keep her from bothering it? Would it help to keep her in a sling like they do for some of the Mareks birds to keep her from bouncing around too much?

    You could make a chicken hammoc. It's where you take cloth and make holes for her legato go through as tie it up so she can't touch the ground. That could help alot
