I know I haven't written on here in a while and I guess that would be because I have nothing good to say about Hops. He has grown up a bit since I last wrote and his feathers have come in better but he is still significantly smaller then the others. There is no use in healing the leg because the joint will not hold in the tendon. As of now I just have a one legged chicken! He really gets around just fine and can keep up quite well with the others. He uses the deformed leg as a crutch and eats and drinks just fine.
I could no longer afford to bring him to the vet because I used up my last of the money in the savings account the first 3 times I took him. I am just going to let nature take its course and continue to provide the best care that I can.
Thank you to all that have been reading this and hoping the best for us. I appreciate it.
