    I have a hen that has been injured and is walking on one of her legs with the foot folded back as if the foot isn't even there. Is there a way to splint her foot to make her walk on the foot or should I just leave it alone and hope it gets better? She is eating and seems fine other than the limping?

    I have placed the hen in a small cat crate in hopes that reducing her movement will help the healing.

    Any thoughts?
