My rooster, Crowmarty, may have broken his leg about 5 days ago, or dislocated it at the hip. It just hangs there and he can't seem to put much, if any, weight on it. I don't find any swelling and it's not crooked. He may have gotten in caught in the chain link while sparring with another roo on the other side of the fence. My husband and I put a splint on it night before last but it seems like he moves around much less now. Should we remove it and just keep him quiet?
