This a chicken about 6 months, It was bitten by a small dog in its side. There is no puncture wound but alot of swelling. One wing looks broken not moving the wing. It will stand but wont walk. What do i do for it? I thought it would die but it has been a couple of hours? Since i dont know if it is bleeding inside i have given it anything. It is sleeping when you leave alone but will move its head and look at you when you walk up to him. what is the best way to treat this???thanks in advance.

Tie up the wing to her body -- wrap with gauze or pantyhose or a strip of towel or t-shirt. Drip water onto her beak to see if she will drink -- a little sugar water or a bit of yogurt in the water is good. Getly put her in a crate and leave her alone.

So sorry -- I know it's stressful. ♥

i had a chicken that a dog attacked and broke her wing i taped it up with non stick tape (it sticks to itself and not the feathers) and she lived and her wing healed.
good luck.
