Ok here is the rundown on Mrs. B 1) What type of bird , age and weight. Dark Cornish hen, she is about 6 months old and weighs an average amount for a dark cornish. She is not over or underweight. 2) What is the behavior, exactly. She is limping badly. Refusing to use one leg when walking. She will put weight on it when she has to but most of the time she stands on one foot and lets the other one hang off the ground. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? We noticed it yesterday morning. It has continued into this morning pretty much the same. 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? No 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. I felt along her entire leg for a break of some kind and didn't feel anything. It is not dislocated. There appears to be no direct sign of trauma. 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. I don't have a clue. Our dog chased the birds several days ago but she didn't touch any of them and that was 4 days ago and she has only been limping since yesterday. 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Poop is totally normal. Not runny at all. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Separated her into a small cage to keep her from moving around a lot. Nothing else. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? We will do treatment ourselves. No vet would see her anyway and while we love her she is not our pet. Like all our chickens she is here for egg production. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. A picture wouldn't show anything out of the ordinary. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use In the coop they have 2 roosts at 2 different levels and their coop bedding is sand during the summer. The birds free range ALL day. She does not have a mark of an attack on her. She is eating well and is bright eyed. no discharge from nose or eyes. no wheezing etc. Just simply this leg issue. If it does not get better in a few days I don't know what else to do but cull. It does seem to be painful to her but I can't see any inflammation or feel a break and it is not dislocated. I just don't know what the heck to do, if anything.
