What kind of chick has wings on its back? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 

I'm sorry to say that this story ended badly. We lost her over the weekend at 4weeks old. I have no idea what went wrong... She was fine, then suddenly she wasn't. 7yrs of birds & this was the first time we've ever lost a baby. Its been a terrible loss. :hit

Sorry to hear that, she may have had internal problems as well. Deformed organs or something.

Thanks. It was a total shock. We're here with them 24/7 & it just seemed to come out of nowhere. One day she was fine & the next day she was sleepy. I held her in my hand for 6 hours feeding her electrolytes with an eye dropper, but couldn't save her. Very sad!  :(

I agree with Gray...  the deformity with the wings may have hinted at what was going on inside...   just the odds sorry to say.
