Hello Everyone I welcome any advice and info on my latest chicken saga! I have a 8/9week old rare breed Death Layer Roo that I invested in with a pullet to breed. Very happy with the GreenFire line as it was imported and from a reputable breeder. Over what seems one evening I noticed a roost bar twisted low in brooder and my Death Layer Roo limping. To the vet we go and $230 later after X-ray s and inflamatory injection we have a dignosis of a slightly bruised or inflamed growth plate in the tibia. Time will hopefully heal and tell if it’s become a damaged growth plate which will result in one leg might be affected and grow shorter. Ugh!!!!! So upset!! Vets directive; separate alone or with calm lady pullet and allow to rest over this week. Monday/Tuesday if leg still deteriorated give oral inflamatory prescription given. No bandage needed, brace or anything else needed. Now I have the bird separated in its own crate from other hyper teeny boppers. ...I might move pullet death layer with him in smaller crate as he and his lady seems to still snuggle through the crate edges. She even feeds in his dish! They may be calmer together. Thanks in advance for anything...bc I am sooooo saddened for this little guy!!!
