    My silkie fell backwards off of a short table today, it wasn't a big fall and she didn't fall hard, but she is now holding up one of her legs. She will put weight on it, but keeps lifting it up and holding it there. I don't think she broke anything, it's hard to tell with all the feathers. Will she be okay? Is there something I can give her? Thanks.

    I would make her comfy and give her treats and wait and see if it gets better or worse.

    She seems better now. She isn't lifting her leg anymore and bearing weight on it. Thanks! Silly girl was sitting on the table and was slowly backing up and the i heard flapping and turned around and she was gone [​IMG] She had a diaper on though that she landed on that broke her fall.
