I got some bantams today, one of them "crawled" out of the carrier and sat in the corner when i brought her home. Im not sure whats going on with her, but the guy I got her from i noticed was a little rough with her and all his birds. I bought her from a breeder at a show, he had several bantams in the show. He wsa looking over his birds and flipping them on their back as he inspected them for any abnormalities on the legs. When I went to purchase 2 bantams (All the birds inside for sale at the show were required to be vaccinated for all illnesses) he grabbed both my birds out and plunked them in my arms before I could pay him, so I handed them back and he took them again, holding them by the legs in one hand with the heads tucked under his armpit. I paid him, took the birds again and put them in my carrier. It took about 2 hours to get home. In that time, Im not sure if the hen injured her leg herself, or if it was the breeder or me putting her in the carrier. Now she has her tail down, leans to the right leg and has the left leg raised up into her chest like it hurts to even lean on it. Im not completely sure what to do. I tried to check for dislocation in the hip but could not feel anything because she would flap every time I tried to handle her. Im sure some of it might be pain and some from being imbalanced. Anyone have experience with this? She does have a red aluminum band on her wing...not sure what it means.
