    How old are these injuries? If they are healed over, I really have no idea what you can do. Many people make house pets out of injured and are handicap. You might post a pic of this bird in the emergency section here on BYC and maybe someone has experience with chickens with this sort of issue....

    Good luck with your bird. I hope she can manage in this condition.

    If you have any pictures loaded in your pc, you can upload them to this page by clicking on that little icon that looks like a scene. (2 to the left of the smile face at the top of this box). That will lead you to your pc where you can browse and load pics here. :)

    There have been other one legged chickens on BYC threads, usually from a predator attack and they have been able to get around very well. It is better to have them as a pet tho, so others in the flock don't attack or kill them.
