    Hi,

    A stray dog attacked a chicken yesterday. She's about 3 mos old, part anacona/game bird. I put her up for the night, gave her a chance to destress. She seems good now, except she can't support herself on her right leg.
    I was looking at the way she is holding her wing on that side, out from her body. That's when I realized the right hip is higher up than the left. Maybe it's out of joint? I don't think anything is broke. If I tug on the leg, could it be popped back in?

    Any suggestions for healing her leg? If there's hope for her leg, I'd rather try to fix it than...yk, put her down
