    So, my nephew picked up one of the hens and it now seems hurt. Feet and legs fine, seems to be a wing or back issue? I have babied the hen and placed it in the coop tonight. Do they bounce back? Saw one post that the guy feed a half of aspirin..... Thanks all

    She may bounce back after a good night's rest. They often do. I would see how she gets around in the morning. If nothing is broken or impeding her normal functions, i wouldn't worry too much.

    Welcome to BYC! A wing can probably be fixed. A back... I'm not so sure. I guess it would depend where it's located.
