Sprained chicken leg?!
I have a very small belgian d'uccle (5months old, 12oz) recently a very young, but rather large silkie rooster (4months old, 3+lbs) became obsessed with this particular hen and began to jump on her as if to mate, even though neither are of breeding age! The d'uccle's leg went out from under her when the roo jumped on her, and now often slips when walking. We have seperated the birds, leaving the d'uccle with a couple month old birds. Do we need to treat the leg like we would for a splayed leg hatchling or should we just allow time to heal?
