Microchick and who ever else is following along concerning the blind chick.
I have an up-date.
It was a little bit of a rough night for Chicken Little,9 that is what I decided to name her,) she kept coming out of her mama heat pad cave and getting cold.Fortunately I could hear her from my deck when she would start chirping the distress call. I had to go down to the coop 4 times and put her back under the heat. I guess she didnt know it was night time.
Well today she is doing great. First thing this morning I raced down to the coop to see how she was doing, ( almost expecting to find her dead), and there she was just eating, pecking and making a huge mess of her food. She was really enjoying herself. The sun came up and she was relaxing and basking in the sun. I even moved her water and she found it right away. I am so proud of her for being a fighter. So for right now she does have quality of life and as long as she seems content and she is not in pain I will just take this thing one day at a time.
Thanks to those that offered advice or support, I really appreciate it.
Marie I am so thrilled to hear that the baby is doing better. Did it ever open that remaining eye for you?
Aggie has settled in on the 12 eggs that we gave her. So funny to put an egg at her breast and watch her carefully shuffle it under her. She is in her own nesting box, with her own caged area to get out out and stretch her legs in. Food and water on the far side of the cage.
This little girl gives her all when she broods. Besides giving her game bird finisher feed, sunflower seed and scrambled eggs, oh, and rooster booster in her water, what can I do to help her through this without loosing as much weight as she did with her first brood?
