Her eye is less squinty but still not fully open. Her eating is returning to normal and she is more active than she was. All brilliant news!
So today she was allowed out in the garden with the other gals, to catch the last of the Autumnal sun, and that's when I spotted it.
Just look at that wing!
What on earth is it doing dragging along the floor?!!
I have absolutely no idea what she's done to it. I can't imagine she's broken it, she's been a house chicken pretty much since we've had her. There's been no scuffles with my other gals. Gahhh!!!!
Apparently, according to the web, sometimes they can drag a wing for a number of reasons, after a couple of days it returns to normal, so we shall see.
I have secured her wing in 'Vet Wrap'. Seeing it dragging along the floor, getting in the way didn't seem to be helping her much and if it is broken, it needs to be secured into as near as normal position to aid healing.
I had to nip out to our local pet shop, they only had a bone design, she'll have to pretend it's her Hallowe'en outfit :)
|Trick Or Treat!|
We'll be back to the vets on Monday to get it checked out, I need to go anyway. The 'Drop-On' mite killer they gave me in a syringe got a bit stuck and I manage to squirt all of the 20mls over Hattie and the sofa instead of 10mls just on Hattie.
This chicken lark, it ain't always easy!
