    I know it is absolutely worthless to say this. BUT I will anyways. I had a BBB that dropped a wing for about a week, I have no idea why, then it was better, now I do not know which one it was.

    Well, then I'm just going to hope it's something like this and he heals up on his own! I'm going to do another check tonight to make sure that there's no broken skin anywhere on him that should be tended to. It's just too hot and muggy to bandage him up if I don't have to.

    I am so disappointed in JJ today.

    I found his name in the list of names hacked from AshleyMadison.

    It appears he was trying to fool around on Ethel, while she raised his poults!

    JJ wanted to go out for a drink tonight, but I am not going. I have no idea what to do about him.

    Maybe I should write to Dear Abbey.

    Aw, poor guy - getting picked on by the chickens lol. Mine sometimes has that problem too, seems like he doesn't realize that he is bigger than them and doesn't have to put up with it :p

    My chickens and turkeys do not seem the realize they are different species. Some hang together some have BFF's of the other species.

    I just picked up on of my BBB who weighs close to 20 pounds, to check his breast and crop. He screamed and cried like a baby. One of my young (3-4 month old) roosters who hardly looks like a rooster came to his rescue, and he weighs all of 3 pounds. I am going to keep him though. He is a BA and I lost my BA rooster, I like his moxy to try and protect other birds. Besides he has a beautiful sheen to his feathers.

    That's it exactly! SilkieSensation suggested a saddle for the one being picked on. I think I need a tube sock for his long neck! A sweatshirt sleeve maybe...off to find an old sweatshirt to cut up...
