    Welsummer has apparent hip injury happend all the sudden, she is six mo old and just started laying. brought her inside for two weeks with daily visits outside but shes just starting to try to stand again. she has no obvious breaks or dislocations. eating and drinking well, still laying eggs, doesn't seem to be in pain, will stand on roost all night if i put her on it. poop looks normal, she not doing the splits, no sign of meriks, color is well, eggs are beautiful, no bad odor, bright eyes, very alert.

    How long would it take for an injury like a hip do heal to where she could walk again? Or what is a reasonable length of time to determine if she does heal?

    Advice is appreciated.
    Thanks

    the panting might be because she is hot
