    My hen is having problem with his feather from couple of days because his left feather was hanging down a little but right feather was in good form so I checked it today and found that its "Radius" which is in between his feathers has little scratch or you can say broken bone in his feather. Due to that broken feather he could not jump on the road from the first floor of my house and so he got another problem in his leg which was very sad for him but I checked him to doctor and kept him on the coop.

    I want reply by only who knows it professionally or skillfully whether his feather s bone can be connected and he could be healthier soon ???????

    do you mean her wing. a broken feather would not be a problem but a broken wing would.

    i would keep her separate from any others for a while to let her heal. and i would make sure she cannot try to fly from any height until healed.
