In the Brooder
- Jul 23, 2016
So my 4 month chick was found on the ground possibly having a seizure? I went and picked it up with a towel/rag. My first thought was "it broke its neck..." Since its neck was tucked under its body like if it had broke. I then realized that's not the problem since it lifted up its head without signs of damage. The afternoon before the chick was completely fine , eating, drinking water, being able to walk around finely . But I did notice that it's head was tilted when it was walking as if one of its eyes where blind but I couldn't figure out why. So I had my chick in a rag in my hands struggling to survive. I started to lose hope that it was going to survive so I set my chick on a picnic table while I sat next to it making sure nothing happend , then the miracle happened , it opened its eyes and started to walk it then jumped off the table ( it was ok) and started to walk away and be the chick that didn't let me be near it .it sat down I went to get it food and she started pecking around for it . She seemed very wobbly and unstable . She then kinda started to sun bathe . I'm not sure what could have happend except for brain damage . The chick still walks around with her head tilted and I'm just hoping for the best .
