I am just reading this now, I realize it was posted years ago...what did you end up doing with her?  I was hoping that this was recent, and I could tell you to build her a little "wheelchair" type device, or if you were having trouble caring for her that I would take her, but this was obviously written a while back...just curious!  I hope all worked out...

Spotted Crow, I felt the same way, as long as she's eating and pooping (which she was) she should be OK. Unfortunately, she struggled and struggled to stand and walk and kept falling over and dragging herself along with her beak. During her struggles she made peeping noises and over the last month or so was only happy when I was holding her.  When I put her down she would struggle and try to stand and get over to me.  It just broke my heart to watch her frustration. I hope this message is legible since I can't see too well what I'm typing through my tears.  I feel like there's a hole in my heart.  I'm having her cremated so I can have her with me forever. This is a terrible thing to say but I didn't cry this much when my father passed away.  That pile of feathers had such a strangle hold on my heart strings. I miss her terribly already but I'm sure she's in a better place where she can stand and walk and scratch to her hearts content.  Rest In Peace Chickie Momma. Til we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.
