Yesterday I agreed to take in a hen with a "back problem". I'm pretty horrified at the condition of this girl. As you can see, she stands almost straight up. She can walk, but not easily. The former owners tell me she has been this way for 8 months at least and that they believe two roos are responsible for injuring her. No vet around here will look at her - I thought an x-ray would give me a better idea of what is going on and whether or not she has healed and most importantly, is she in pain. She eats & poos just fine, she's alert and curious. All of the feathers under her wings are missing. I see no signs of mites or lice, it could be that because she sticks out her wings for balance (sort of like pictures of the way the wings of angels stick out when at rest) it may have rubbed off the feathers. Is there any way to tell if this bird is in pain? What should I do for her?
