    I've been taking care of a little bantam EE hen that my friend was given. Her eyes are cloudy but treating with ointment. Not sure if leg is broken (seems to have more 'flop' than it should) but toes are curling under and foot is turning inward. Today I braced the joint above the foot and made this handy-dandy pad to help straighten her toes and foot. The blue part is felt to cushion her feet and its attached to a piece of laminate for countertops.Its thin but durable.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    the eyes being cloudy could be from pain looks like u did a nice patch job. let me know how well it works. sometimes fixing is a try and error job good luck.
