post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I recently adopted a chicken I name Shelby...from my landlord he got her at the auction...she is older and she has some big problems with her legs. She can't stand like a normal chicken or walk I just don't have the heart to put her down..she is so beautiful I'm trying to rehabilitate her ..so that she can live a normal chicken life.. here is some pic of her problem..


Thanks

She looks like she has a slipped tendon and crooked toes. Try posting in the "Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries and Cures" section.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

:welcome

 

I hope you can find some help for Shelby. Do you have other chickens? If so, I hope you're keeping her separated from them because they could really go after her partly because she's new and partly because she's injured.

 

Good luck!

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

I hope she can be helped - usually foot problems respond fast to treatment in very young birds.
