I think my silkie hen has a broken leg. she hobbles around and she lays down more than usual. She is eating and doing just fine. I examined the offending leg and I can't figure out where the break is. How do you feel for that sort of thing, what does a break feel like? And how do I splint it? I'm thinking that I need to separate her from the group, because the rooster is taking advantage of her lots of sitting and hopping on her to mate. Then she seems to hobble worse afterwards. How long would you keep them separated? How long does a break normally take to heal? Could she have broken it because the rooster was too rough with her?
