    Good morning. Looks like a good place to be for chicken lovers! I stumbled across this looking for a "fix" for one of my chickens that has a hurt leg. She got a bath yesterday and is resting comfortably in our guest bath tub!

    G’Day from down under Tetra [​IMG] Welcome!

    I do hope that your girl makes a full recovery. If you feel you need one on one assistance with her care, I recommend posting on the Emergencies & Disease Forum where there are lots of helpful people: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Hope your girl is back to normal soon. The ER link Teila gave you can be helpful if you need further assistance.

    Best wishes!
