My best columbian hen of course, is hobbling around. She went broody in a huge planter on my porch. She was completely hidden by the plants so I never worried much about predators plus we live in a well-populated area. Anyway, the ohter day I noticed her cleaning herself and fumbling a bit. I didn't pay much attention.. thought she was just being lazy. This morning I found her huddled up next to the pot. I don't think her and her peep jumped up there last night. I brought her out in the yard and she cannot walk. I felt her up and her right leg is painful to the touch. I brought her in with food and water and her and her peep are both eating and drinking. She, otherwise, looks healthy. Can chickens recover from a sprain.. maybe she sprained it jumping down from the pot... app. 2 and a half feet?
