Can I splint a silky hen that I think has a broken leg?
She will not walk on it and when I checked her the leg is floppy and very cold like there is no blood circulating in the leg
If I splint her leg will it heal do you think?

You should take her to vet to make sure it is broken and to get antibiotics to stop infection other wise she may die from the injury

I have to agree but unless it is an important bird I would not bother as it will be costly and they will not guarantee they can fix it.
