In the Brooder
- Dec 16, 2009
This is our first keets to hatch. The first one is fine over 24 hours old and running around already. The second one is doing well also. The third and last is the problem. It came out of the shell at 2am this morning and the membrain around is was sort of hard from the right side of the head down to the right wing. So I took a cotton ball with warm water (just a tad) rub it over and it became slimy and pulled off. I noticed that underneath from the head to parts of it's back the feathers are stuck together like tar. I keep checking and the left side is getting nice and fluffly but the rest is not. The keet is having a hard time moving around since it can't move freely due to not being able to move it's right wing. Is there anything I can do to take care of this. It is sleeping a lot which I know is normal, but with the feathers stuck together like that, it will not be able to stabilize itself. What should I do?
