This is about one of my mother's chickens. A few weeks ago she told me one of her chickens was limping. Later that day I went to her house and checked her over carefully. I looked at her foot and leg on the affected side and couldn't find anything wrong. I assumed she may have hurt her leg a little and was just going to limp for a few days and it would be alright. A week or so later there was no improvement and I checked again. Still found NOTHING that could be causing it. She moved her inside to make sure the otehr chickens didn't pick on her. A few days ago (godness, a month or more later) I said we HAVE to figure out what is causing this. I had her hold her on her back. I started at the hip and slowly felt every millimeter of her leg. Right in the knee joint I felt a small separation and could tell the bone was actually broken and now set back. I don't know how I missed it all along. The chicken acts healthy, eats and poops great, and seems to LOVE her new status as a house chicken. Soooooo......would it be worth it to try to get it fixed or just leave things as they are? We don't have a vet that takes care of chickens but I might be able to find one within driving distance (can't guarantee it though).
