Hello! I am new here, and have my first hatchlings. They were under mom and 5 of 6 hatched! So now, one was born with a broken leg (complex fracture of the knee/hock? area). I set it, splinted it and watched the baby until nighttime, when my husband put the chick under the mother hen, insisting everything would be ok. Well, it was not. I went to check on him and sure enough the mother was attacking the poor thing. I got him out, but she did a number on his foot, wing, and face area. I cleaned him up, wrapped him in a dry towel, and offered food and water (which he was taking from a spoon yesterday) and he is not taking now. I dripped some water into the side of his beak and he opens his mouth a little bit and drinks it, but thats it. He still peeps and is breathing fine. How do I care for him? Should I offer water in a dropper? Does the fact that he won't open his beak mean the beak is injured? The hen is very good with the others, they are 4 days old. Should I continue to allow them to stay with the mother? The foot looks very bad... Can a chicken survive with one foot? Should I let nature take its course? Ahhhhh... TIA!
