Grrr stupid internet, just made a big post and it dropped out on me. Anyway. We had 8 chooks but have lost 4 in cat attacks, at least 3 have been hens. That has left us with 2 roos and 2 hens. We are going to get some more but we are wanting to wait until the cat issue settles (its not even our cat, we dont own cats) before we get anymore pullets. In one of the cat attacks one of the roos was hit. No obvious wounds but it had a bad limp and was very unsteady when walking. He didnt appear in any severe pain, he walks to get food and drinks, pecs and what not, seems quite happy, Doesnt seem fazed at all, he just sits more often than not and is unsteady when walking. This happened well over a week ago and he doesnt seem to be any better with his movement so im thinking this might be a perminant disability. So im now wondering, will it be possible to keep the two roos, as he doesnt really look like he will be able to be too dominant. Im still holding out hope that the other roo is acutally a hen. but im cluctching at straws LOL. Has anyone else been in this sort of situation? What are your thoughts? Cheers all!
