    Our hen that has what appears to be a dislocated leg or else it was broken, we didn't know and it healed strangely - that foot is sort of swollen compared to her other foot. We are just trying to figure out anything we can do to help her. She seems fine otherwise - eats, drinks, doesn't walk much of course. Here is a pic of her feet. First the top and bottom of swollen one - not sure what the red dotty look is on that foot - you can see its got the yellow vet wrap on it - and then same pic of her other foot that we think is fine. She also seems to have no feeling in them, the swollen one toes stay straight, no curling at all. Thank you for any help. [​IMG]

    Oh, no!

    I hope someone with more experience with this comes along to post.
