    Three days ago my Siberian Husky ran into my coop and grabbed my 12 week old silkie. She was not injured in any way, except for one leg. She does not use it at all, it just hangs there. She drags it when she tries to get around. I called a local wildlife rescue that deal with injured birds, they told me to feel for the break and then wrap it. I can't find a break and she does not seem to be in pain when I mess with it. I am really concerned because she does not even try to pull it away when I mess with it. She is eating and drinking just fine. Help, Thanks

    when my chick's leg was broken she definitely did NOT want me messing with it

    Perhaps your bird is suffering from a dislocation ???
