Hi I wonder if any one can advise me on the correct course of action. I have a two week old chick that has started limping as of two days ago. She appears to have had her hip dislocated. She is bending her hock then using the hock and foot in a straight line for support, so she sort has a shorter leg on one side. The good legs sits neatly under her , but the sore one stands away from her body from the hip. She is still eating , and drinking and at this point keeping up with her Mum. But I have noticed every now and again she gets tired and then just sits and peeps. I have tried isolating her inside but she peeps really loudly for her surrogate Mum. Should I put something on that hock that is suddenly taking so much pressure? Should I keep her inside even if she makes a noise, just so she isnt doing so much work with that leg. Will it heal itself or will she forever limp. I am so worried, her leg appears sore. All i have done is put a drop of Comfrey in my hens drinking water in the hope that the chick gets some and it helps with the repair. Any advice is most welcome.
