Hello all,
My Brahma banty broody hatched out a clutch of five a week ago. Today she accidentally stepped on two chicks while rummaging around the brooder and eating with the chicks. I transported both of them to a heating pad. The one walks clumsily, and peeps in distress when touched, as if in pain. The other peeps normally, walks almost normally, but its head spins to the left occasionally and it looses its balance. Is there anything else I can do for them? Electrolytes are always plentiful, and they had just eaten and drunk plenty before the accident.
Thank you in advance!
UPDATE: I think the larger one has suffered some serious spinal issues- now its wings are dragging and it can't walk at all.
Culling seems to be inevitable,.. :(
