    My RIR was grabbed by the neighbors dog the other day, grrrrrr and ripped out a bunch of her rear feathers and she is limping a bit as well. She barely stands on her leg and I noticed yesterday that her middle toe is black and blue and wabbley. What should I do? I am keeping her inside for a few days to maybe help it heal and keep her off it. Poor thing.

    Sounds broken. It would be good if you could immobilize it, but you would have to watch carefully that you do not cut off the circulation.
