Do you think that you could make something to put around his neck to help him hold it up?  Poor thing.  hugs

yeah, if you could find something like an ace bandage or vetrap that you could cut it might work.

i had to do it to one of my older pullets when she had a concussion and couldn't support her head for a few days.

with a chick that small you may have to use a chick chair method till its neck is stronger. here's a link i got a few days ago from someone else on here. http://sites.google.com/a/larsencreek.com/chicken-orthopedics/leg-braces

Wow, thanks for the link.  I never heard of chicken chairs before, etc.  Wish someone could gather all these great links into one book for easy use.

I dont want to upset anyone and please forgive me BUT:
maybe it would be better to cull the little thing so that it is not suffering?.... just a suggestion... if it was born with a deformity then it will have a up hill battle that may not be a great life...

i can come off a little strong...i tend to speak first then later put my foot in my mouth


Remember just because you read it on the internet does not make it true research everything carefully and act accordingly
