    we have a rooster that got its leg injury pretty sure its broke and its broke high up in hip area. Is there anything we can do for it. It doesn't seem to be in distress we have him separate from the rest of the chickens. should I wrap it and if I do should I wrap with the leg crouch together and the wrapping going around his body. Does that make sense? any suggestion would be greatly appreciated

    I wrapped one of mine that way. Around the leg then around the body, over and over . That stabilized the area well. Mine took 6 weeks to heal.
