We recently (about 3 weeks ago) saved a chick that was pecked almost to death by a hen (scalp was very bloody and all feathers gone on head), and nursed it back to life in our house. But I didn't realize that it was slowly losing its strength in its legs and now curls its feet. In fact it can't stand up at all now, but otherwise its head has healed very nicely considering how bad it was. I am not sure if the pecking caused brain damage or if this was the reason why the hen pecked it (maybe it knew there was a problem). My dilemma is that now we have "saved" it, I am not sure it will ever walk again. It eats Ok as long as it can flop around to the food bowl, but unless it walks properly it will never be able to be reintroduced to the hen house, and the smell it too strong to have an indoor chicken! Should I "cull" it or do you think it could eventually recover? We keep our chickens as pets and the eggs, so we have NEVER killed one. I have no idea how to do this in a humane way. It breaks our hearts, but watching it flop around breaks our heart too! Please give any advice.
