Knock knees? Something else? Sick? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 


The closest feed store was closed today... I ordered some riboflavin but it won't be here for a few days, so I'll go out and try looking again tomorrow. She has period of time where she's looking better but like right now in my lap she's mostly just sleeping and not trying very hard to move or eat or anything, seems in a bit of a daze. Still fights me like the dickens when I pick her up though... I'm wondering if heat could be a factor? The brooder is set for about 90-70 but she's almost always in the cold side, if the brooder is too warm will that make it harder for her to improve?

Bowser seems to be doing much better, she's walking a lot more, running, flapping, doing chicken stuff. She even sleeps in piles with the other chickens. I mixed their old feed with medicated purina feed and upped the riboflavin in the water, also got cod liver oil and mixed it with their scrambled eggs, and gave them chicken grit just because maybe it would help (I also give them mealworms sometimes so they need it now). Her knees are healed up, can hardly even see any pink on there. she still walks like an ostrich and sortof like shes trying to walk on fly paper or something, she raises her legs really high to walk but her knees don't like like they are giving up on her anymore... Not sure if it was a combo of everything, or she just had some growing trouble in general but I'm hopeful she will be ok ;3
