Hello,
Due to the run in with your dog it sounds like your chicken has damaged her leg quite badly. We would suggest that you take her to the vet to check for any broken bones. If this is not the case it is likely that your chicken will require some pain killers, cage rest and some TLC. Please do let us know how you get on and write back if you have any further questions.

We hope this helps,
Chicken Vet
