I have just aquired a chicken .She is about 16 weeks old and has only one good leg,the other leg and foot is at a right angle and she walks on her elbow!She hobbles about and is the sweetest little thing trying to jump up on my lap but never quite making it.I love her to death already. Please tell me about your special needs chickens. D

I don't have my Frodo anymore...he passed away from Diabetes. 

here's some photos of him...if it helps at all.  Frodo would walk around on the nubs that were his feet.  Loved the little guy...he was toilet trained and would "tell" me when he pooed his diaper.

Looking somewhat normal:

What was going on...

To show that he COULD stand:

A happy memory of him:

Yes...I kept him in my dorm room for a month until he started feeling better...and he COULD walk around.  He loved Superbowl time.  He fell asleep on my boyfriend's feet.
