    Well, the chicken is in recovery, but her left wing is still droopy and I think it might need to be tied up or splint attached. I don't know how or if this is necessary. Suggestions.

    I would just bind the wing to the body of the bird with stretchy bandage, it you could get it to stay. Just a thought, maybe someone else can help more

    The stretchy bandage is called "vet wrap" and is available in all feed stores. I would go on the "chicken anatomy" link and see if that will help you. Wishing you Good luck!
