    Lakeport CA,
    I have had chickens for about two years now. When i met my boyfriend he had one chicken and i had never been around them much before this time... now we have four hens total. We have one silky, one roade island red, one star, and a americana. I found out about backyard chicken because about a week ago my roade island red got attacked by neighbor's dog and I had and still have lot of questions. She got bit and she seems to be getting better but her leg she can't put any pressure on it and she keeps it pulled up and her toes are curled up also and im not sure if this is normal

    Welcome to BYC. It takes time to heal leg/foot injuries if that's what it is. As long as she's eating and drinking normally, I wouldnt worry about it.

    Welcome to BYC! So sorry to hear about your chicken being attacked but hope that she is on the mend and putting weight on that leg soon. Enjoy your chickens! [​IMG]
