    Hi All,

    Justin here, I'm new to the forum. Looks like a great place to learn chicken things.

    I live in Central Utah. This winter I built a chicken coop, and a friend of mine gave me about 20 chickens he didn't need. One of the hens has a broken wing. It just sticks out from her side, and she cannot pull it in. Well, she falls over often, or gets knocked over, and cannot get up. She just lays there kicking. She also has trouble getting on a roost at night and also falls over and cannot get up. I was wondering if anyone has any idea how to help her.

    Thanks, Justin
