Did she say if the bone is broken? What about the other leg?

Hey guys, I'm the one that has this little bird. Yes, both legs are defiantly broken, unfortunately in a few places. Her crop is also very swollen and shes underweight. Not sure if trich or trauma so shes getting the full work up, antibiotics and is on plenty of metacam.
Her droppings are, in my experience indicative to the "paralysis droppings" so that worries me, but she could just be holding them in longer as she can't get up and move, so I am hopeful.
She seems to be some small roller breed, atleast a mutt of some sort, so not sure if release would be the best idea regardless of how recovery goes.
But she is in good spirits. Happily stays in her "towel doughnut" So hopefully those poor little shattered legs will walk again in the future.

Hi GimpieLover. I'm so glad it's you who has her. Thank you. I think this one will be a challenge.
She's in good hands. Let us know how it goes. Do you think maybe she hit a wire?

It's always possible. No signs of any predator attack. It's like she just landed on the ground without her wings and crumpled her landing gear. Maybe something could have dazed her and she fell. Always hard to guess. They have such rough lives out there. The crop doesn't seem to be ruptured, but it defiantly isn't happy.
I'm guessing she has more fractures up in her pelvic region. Her leg movement is pretty minimal, but she is able to keep them underneath her, so that is a good sign. Most paralysis in my experience only have enough movement to push off and the legs stay dragging behind. Haven't found any bruising along the spine either.
There are no clean breaks in the legs so the healing bone will be fragment- chunky. no way around that one.
It will be a long recovery, but I think she might do ok. Time will tell on this one.

Oh goodness I'm so pleased that this little darling is getting such good care, between the two of you you have been amazing. I always think of these kind of cases as if it were my own birds, I know they are all as lovely and as precious and it saddens me to think of them out in the big wide world all alone and in such a terrible condition. It's so heartwarming to see how so many others love pigeons and will help them - you two are fabulous and that little girl is so lucky to have fallen into such caring hands. Thank you so much for all you do for our beautiful babes.
