Hi, i have a sweet little black austrolorp with a broken leg. i don't know how it happened, but it has been a couple of weeks. i thought she had just hurt it,but upon further investigation see that it is broken. i had put her in a cage and have been watching, but don't know if it is healing. i have been thinking about putting on a padded splint and taping it up for a couple of weeks to see if it sets. has anyone done this before? i really don't want to put her down, as she is eating, drinking, laying eggs, and seems to feel fine otherwise.
