NH with Leg Problems

Jun 7, 2017
Southwestern Pennsylvania
At about 2 weeks old, the bird had a leg injury. It was assumed to be a broken leg. It was not given any medical treatment for a week.

The bird was given to me at 3 weeks old and seemed to be somewhat healed. I wrapped the leg, swelling went down, she has a great appetite and gets around somewhat with the wings.

But now the leg in question won’t stay under her, so I’ve given her little leg cuffs a nice distance apart and she sits correctly now... but mobility has been more impaired since I’ve done this. Still eating and drinking and pooping. Any advice is appreciated. I did notice some muscular atrophy in the healed leg. She’s 3.5 weeks old now.
