I gave them aspirin and vitamin d (about 400-500 IU for each hen), changet bandage and oinment ang gauze pad. The one that was sitting and limping seems fine after laying that egg - roosts, doesn't limp and doesn't sit. The only limping one just went to bed (crate with straw) :D

It has stopped. She's okay now. She's in the basement (not cold).
Okay. I think she may be shaking because she has not enough vit. D.
A hen living in a basement without vit. supplement could get seriously ill- can you get some for her?

about 400 or 500 IU of Vit D for humans mit a bit of aspirin in case, mixed with a crumb of breat in a ball shape. Meds were pulverized.
Ok, haven't tried that before but I expect an expert told you. Hope she gets well.
