Wow! He was spectacular! So sorry you lost him. Some of them are so hard not to get attached to. People who've never kept chickens can't comprehend how charming and affectionate they can be. Many of my birds are as affectionate as my dogs, and follow me around just as much.
I couldn't agree more. Gigi would greet me at the door when I got home. He only crowed 3 times, so he was a great roomie lol. I believe he developed wry neck from an injury, and since he was a NN it visually exaggerated what really happens. I learned a lot, needless to say.
Is there a way to post videos? I'd love to share what I learned as it was hard to find info on wry neck. Non-chicken people would tell me to put him out of his misery when they would see him with his head upside down. It wasnt until i fould an in depth article on rabbits that I knew he wasnt in pain. I even got a script for an anti-inflammatory from my Dr after reading an article online that gave me hope(my avian specialist vet advised me against it, as birds are highly sensitive). Anyway, I'm so thankfull for this site. I can't get enough of it!!
