Just got back from the garden as one hen was missing,  anyway seen it was home on my cctv and went round to get her in . There was a yb also there which I don't normally let out on race days , low and behold it broke its leg . It right up the top which is a pig to do anything about . Any ideas lads because it's a shame to cull it . It's a cracking yb as well ..any advice would be great

If it was mine ray I would put it in a empty nest box with plenty of shavings down and leave it alone taping it up with splint's only make it worse that's my experience

Yes best left alone in a safe place, nature has a means of dealing with the these things in the wild, better than man.

Had pigeons recover from what seemed impossible situations and they usually repay you.


Regards.

Had the same as I once posted. Both legs in pieces been away for a few days. I was determined to fix her up due because of the great effort to home and get through the traps using her wings only.

I Took it around Terry's house, a former fancier. He said best to cull it. Never do it. Well got his wife to come back with me to my home - only 200 yards away, as he nor my wife would hold it. I painfully, taking great care bound each bit with Sellotape around a toothpick … cut to length and then taped the top part of the leg to its body. Then, sellotaped the bottom part of the leg with a toothpick. The bottom again is done and a little form between the leg I taped that to the top part of the leg and body. I did both. It took nearly two hours. I hung her up in a pair of tights like a hamper sling above the floor. I gave her a little milk and glucose via an eye droplet. Left her overnight and then 3 - 6 times a day I lowered the hamper to the clean floor too about a 1/2 inch and let her pick up a little seed. Then I raised her and placed a drinking bowl on the floor, lowering her down to drink from. Clean water and nothing added.
After a week had gone by I got Terry's wife back and cut a little Sellotape to allow it the leg, one at a time a little movement. Seventeen days later, I got the good lady back, and I soaked the Sellotape with soapy water, very thick. Took time to get it all off. Sometimes sweat poured off my brow as fear of hurting her tied the knot in my stomach. Gill, Terry's good lady encourage me, and I kept saying the bird, 'Sorry, but it's better you live and breed later than move on now.
Wasn't long before she flew up to a perch — a little wobbly. However, a week later, she was flying out.

the next season she won a club race from Pau. - Which I was diddled out off. Them saying they never have a club race from there.
Her legs! One could hardly tell they had been broken. However, I was delighted with her and so pleased Terry's wife, and I persevered.
Terry often said 'I'd never have believed it'!

Well done to both of you for having the patience.  This hens leg is snapped right into her body . She is in a basket now and I will see how she is in a few days   I agree with not wanting to cull a bird that has come home after hurting itself as such but time is against her I am afraid as yb training and racing starts soon   but I will see ...thanks

Yep, that hen's leg too was snapped right at the top too.
I thought / hoped she would only be any good as a breeder if able to fix. But was wrong.
actually that was the sister of the pair Mr Robinson said I'd never be able to trap, but would inevitably be first birds back. Of so very true. only ever one actually trapped fairly early was the hen's return from Pau.
