    Anyone ever have success with this one?. My little chick turned up injured in her pen yesterday. I gave her 24 hours in isolation and decided that if she was going to make it that far I'd bring her in the house and nurse her along. So I did a little homework and seems like these injuries need a sling so I made one up. Here's my first attempt. She was unable to stand and right herself on her own. Kept falling over backwards and sideways. Nothing is paralized and I don't believe it neurological. I can't tell exactly where the break or sprain is seems like it is up high. I'll give her another day or two like this and see if I can heal her. Please say a little chicks prayer for her.

    She keeps flipping out of it. Any suggestions?
