Chicken Splint

Posted by Hello

#1 daughter and I take splint off now knitting chicken leg. She (chicken) still limps but seems to be healing fine. Taking splint off so she can stress her newly forming bone and thus strengthen it is the moral to the story. Or as Evie at Karrots put it, whining breeds whining. Everything needs to be challenged -- our bones, our muscles, our immune systems, our beliefs.

I was interested to see you've put a splint on your chicken's leg. I have a two week old chicken with a mis-shapen leg. The muscles seem weak. I've been thinking of trying to splint it in the right position to help her balance. How did you do yours? What did you use?... and how long did you leave it on? Susiechick
