Hey there. I ended up with a barred rock chick today. It arrived at a local farm store this morning and I discovered her in the afternoon. Poor thing was pretty much doing the splits and pretty lethargic. I brought it to the attention of the store and they said they didn't know how to treat it so they would kill the chick. I said I'd give it a shot and now I've got her legs held close with bandage (her joints didnt feel out of place, so I assume splayed) I don't like to give up without a fight and hoping to make it through this in one healthy piece. She has definitely perked up a bit after I got her drinking some electrolyte water and helped get her started eating with some scrambled up egg. Full bellies are good bellies. Time will tell how she ends up. Trying to be strong in case I have to make a hard decision. Anyhow, I actually have not looked too much into barred rocks as a breed besides little descriptions and their 'stats.' It wasn't what I was intending to get, but chick happens I guess what I'm here for is to hear what you guys think of the breed and her condition? I appreciate your thoughts!
