AL's update- He is doing just fine. His comb is a little puffy and turning colors. He is eating, drinking and still mating anything within his reach. Well, I should say, hens within his reach. LOL.
Posted Al's pic on the poultry vet site, and the vet said he should be just fine. In case of open blisters to use some Neosporin without the pain reliever, or if it swells badly, he would need a script for some meloxicam. But he hasn't had blisters or large swelling, so I am relieved.
Made a run to the feed store today to stock up on feed for the next month. Did my usual rounds, looking at product, then over by the chicks, and checked out the incubators they have running with eggs hatching babies. Then William, the older gentleman that helps me all the time, walks by and said, Mary did you check out the chickens we have outside. BIG MISTAKE! Someone must have brought in their flock. There were a couple of big beautiful Buff Orps, Welsummer, a poorly laced, gold lace Orp, and this little Jubilee pullet and some Roos. I would have to say they were not hatchery birds, because of their size. All the birds were adults except the poor little Jubilee pullet, who was just getting pecked no matter where she went. I also think she has a bit of frostbite on her comb. I couldn't help myself. Hopefully rehoming all my extras will go quickly in a month or so. She is in the pet carrier snug and warm. She seems to be sleeping a lot, so she will be separated for 2-4 weeks, just to make sure. I need a name though, lets hear some ideas!
