    Sorry about your hen. Do you think she re-injured the leg? How old is she? What type of food does she eat? I would keep her in a crate or box inside for a few days to watch her more closely. Put her food and water near to her, and add some poultry vitamins with minerals to the food or water. Can she move her feet or legs if your stroke them or pick her up? Was she vaccinated for Mareks disease?
