One of my Brahmas only has one leg. When she was about a month and a half old she broke her leg (unsure exactly how.. most likely fell from a roost that was too high for her). She had an open fracture and they told me that we could either do some crazy chicken leg reconstruction with a rod that had a slim chance of working, euthanize her or try amputating the one leg. Thus she began her life as a one legged chicken. She has no problems getting around, lays well and is not at the bottom of the pecking order but in the past couple of days I have noticed that her leg seems to be bothering her. She is eating, drinking and laying normally but is spending a lot less time standing and stays close to the run while the others free range. There is nothing apparently wrong from looking at the leg, but it seems to be tender near the top and she doesn't seem to want it fussed with. My thought is that after almost a year of hopping around on one leg it must be beginning to wear on her. Brahmas are not a light breed and though she is smaller than the others, she is still fairly large. Is there something I could do to strengthen her leg or supplements/foods that I could give her to ease the pain she may be having in her joints? I don't want her to suffer and other than perhaps some leg pain she is in great health and the friendliest chicken we've got! Any ideas at all would be appreciated as these girls are pets, not food and we would like to keep them all around as long as possible.
