Hi, I just registered on this form and I need help - I do not keep chickens, but I live with my parents in a house on farm property and we have many chickens in our neighborhood. My mom found a chicken today in our hay barn with what I believe is a broken leg, she was apparently being attacked by a rooster but I was not there so I do not know what happened or how the injury was caused. I had to go to class right when she found her so the chicken has been alone for 3 hours now, I just got home a couple minuets ago. I need to take a closer look at the chicken still, since I only saw it for a moment and had to leave. If the leg is broken what should I do? I have been reading online and some people say to splint it and others say to leave the bird alone. I only have limited knowledge of birds from keeping them while I was younger, but I know nothing about bird injuries. After I take a closer look at the bird I'll post what I find, is there anything I should be looking for in particular? If the leg is broken it should be colder than the other due to circulation issues right? Any help is greatly appreciated!
