Hi, I found my chicken in the nest box with her leg stuck about two days ago I don't know how long she was stuck but it seems she has lost feeling in her foot and leg she is sometimes hopping around but mostly lies down.She is about 10 months and I can't afford to take her to the vet.

I have had chickens get hung up in fencing with resultant problems like you describe. There may be permanent damage, but more likely it is just muscle strain. If she is hopping around, eating, and not being abused by the rest of the flock she will probably heal. Understand that it may take a while.
