Dr. Jill :

Hi, I'm Dr. Jill. I'd be happy to try to help with your chicken, but I'd like to ask a couple questions so I can better assist. First, what signs are you seeing? (That is, is the leg in an odd direction, is she just not bearing weight on a leg, any wounds on the bottom of the foot, or is the limb cold in any places?) Second, is the fracture open? (That is, is the skin over the fracture broken with bone ends sticking out?) Lastly, what part of the leg is affected?
