    Sorry no one has helped yet. I put broken leg in the search at the top of the page and quite a bit of info came up. Looks like you should splint and wrap it. Some people have done that and the chicken healed fine. I think you should read some of those threads and maybe post a picture so they can see how bad it is. Poor girl hope she gets better.
