One of my hens hurt her foot yesterday. I’d left the back door of the house open and, once I opened the front door, the draft slammed the back door shut. I went to open it 10 minutes later, only to find that a hen had been standing there and her leg had been trapped in the door. I checked to make sure there was nothing broken – I don’t think so – and there wasn’t much to see apart from a wee cut. She hopped off with the rest but was a little sore today.
You can see some bruising on her leg here. The greeny/blue colour
I sprayed on some antiseptic spray. I didn’t know chickens were potentially cannibals!
It’s not easy being neat………
Off she hopped, back into the hen-house.
