I've been raising ducks for about 4 years now, but unfortunately they draw hunters to our house located on the edge of a river. So we thought it would be a good time to switch over to chickens with the added benefit of fresh eggs.
We did a lot of research online and chose to get Barred Plymouth Rock chicks. I found a local store that was carrying them and went and picked out eight.
We brought them home and got them all set up and comfy in their temporary home until they're big enough to go outside.
I let them roam the run while I emptied out the dirty shavings and thats when I noticed one that has a bit of a crook to her neck. She seems to be eating and drinking alright but more tired than the others. Maybe a little difficult for her to scratch her nose because of the angle of her neck. Shes resting in my lap while the others run around.
Any thoughts on her chances of living out her normal life? She'll obviously be my favorite and get special treatment cause shes just too dang cute with her deformity!
