In the Brooder
- Dec 19, 2015
Two days ago, one of my free range hens got over the fence and my dog got her. She definitely has a broken wing. We wrapped her wing, brought her inside, and started antibiotics. She was acting fine right after the attack aside from her wings hanging down. The following day she couldn't walk. She kept falling over to the side with the broken wing. I thought it was due to the wrap so I removed it but it didn't help, she still fell to that side. I wrapped it back up and laid food down on the ground for her and we are offering water every hour. Today, she is sleeping a lot and still can't walk. She can stand with assistance to keep her from falling over, and can walk as long as you keep her steady but she is sleeping a lot! I don't want to put her down but I don't want her to suffer either. Any advice is welcome. Please help me save my girl!
