We had a chicken at a horse stable that loved the horses and would frequently roost ON their backs. We decided it best to bring it home as this was spooking the horses and the horses were the only thing keeping the chicken safe. The night before we were going to bring it home it somehow got hurt. no VISIBLE injuries though. Unable to stand and wing out to the open position. It was almost like it had been kicked or something. Anyway I brought it home and put it in a kennel and leaned it up against the left side with food and water in front of it. It is eating and drinking very good and seems a little better but still after a week it is not putting any weight on its legs ....neither I of them. It can grab with its feet and if I hold its legs flap its wings but after it flaps them one wing will hang down like its broke. If I thought there is a chance even it will get better I want to try. This chicken LOVES people and will talk to us and will as I call it purr when we talk to it or pet it. However I don't want it living the rest of its life like this. How long is a good time to allow it to get better before putting it down? Has anyone experienced this and had success with the chicken getting better? If so how long did it take? Thanks so much!
