I don't know too much about chickens and I need some uplifting information - if any, on this subject. There is a wild hen in our neighborhood that has 3 chicks about several months old that are able to eat on their own. The mother hen has somehow, injured her leg - badly. The leg is weak, she hops along slowly but still manages to keep up with her young ones. She lifts her leg high when she wobbles along. She's a good mother and still watches over them. She has been eating and it's been about a week since her injury. I think she's a much stronger woman than I am. I keep on hoping that her leg will get a little better. Since I first saw her a week ago, she's been eating more. At first, she couldn't bend her head down to eat unless she laid down. Now, she has adjusted and is now eating standing up. I would like to throw some chicken feed to help her, any suggestions?
