Hi All, I'm after some advice please. Around 6 weeks ago we got 2 new POL hens to keep our one remaining chook company. The pecking order took a couple of weeks to establish and during this time, one of our new POLs, a Black Rock, developed a limp. She was still getting around and eating and drinking OK so we gave it some time to see if it would heal. The limp did not get any better so we took her to a vet who could not find any signs of fractures or infection so assumed a strain or sprain and prescribed Loxicom for the pain and rest. 2 weeks later and the limp is no better. She can still get around and feed etc. but spends a lot of time sitting down and keeping out of the others way. Should I give her some more time to heal or just have her PTS now as I don't want her to suffer if she won't get better and it's been about 4 weeks now? She doesn't seem to be in pain until she tries to walk and then can barely put weight on her leg. The vet suggested next stage of treatment would be sedation and X rays but this would be far too expensive. Is there anything else I can do or try? Any suggestions would be welcomed please.
