Customer Question

She seems to have broken her leg at the knee joint? It's already been 4 days and we have her isolated. Should I wrap with Coban?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No wound. Leg looks normal from the outside, but no weight bearing.
JA: What is the bird's name?
Customer: Honkers lol
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the bird?
Customer: No. She was pushed by a bigger hen into a dirt indentation on the ground of the coop.
