My sweet Duckie, a splash Silkie chicken, had a piece of wood squish him (not fall, but slid rather...over him), into the grass of our backyard. He popped up fine when I ran over and grabbed it off of him. 48 hours later, wobbly legs...walking, but unbalanced. 65 hours later...he's much worse. Unable to control his legs much. Flopping around, etc. It's heartbreaking!!! (These are our pets. We have 2.) The incident happened on Friday...Vet on Tuesday, after the 4th of July Holiday. A Dr who specializes in birds. Gave Meloxicam.... We're day 2 of medicine, and I started Vitamin drops as well. He's eating well (he was this morning, anyway)...and drinking. Just a few hours later, he's not able to barely balance himself in his carpeted coop. Do i wait it out?? Or do we have him put down? I'm so torn. This little guy is just the BEST chicken!! So very sweet and spunky...I don't want him to suffer...but if he can improve and Toodle around...I'm a stay-at-home mom, and have the time to nurture him. But I feel like he's just getting worse and worse. It's killing me to see him like this!! Anyone w any experience? I'd like to hear any thoughts!
