The guy who sold us our chickens from Craigslist sold us this guy as an I dunno except it's a hen. So we named it sandra d and well turns out sandra is a him. We've no idea what kind he is but he has come up lame on us. It started as a weak leg and has progressed to both legs and he won't stand at all. His legs are now splayed and his toes are starting to curl. We've made him a sling and brought him into the garage for some pampering. We've read on the forums of things it could maybe possibly be so we've started trying different things. A week ago we started him on pedialyte, a few days later we bought durvet vitamins and electrolytes and durvet durastart bc we read a vitamin deficiency could cause his symptoms. We were at a family event today and many are chicken owners and my cousin had a chicken with similar symptoms and she said she gave hers dewormer which fixed the problem so we bought some wazine today. The thing that worries us now is they also said some white chickens are meat chickens and meant to be slaughtered at 6 mos (sandra was born Oct 23 uh oh) because they get too large for their legs to support them. Sandra is eating, drinking and pooping like a champ (no bloody or loose stool). Sandra quickly became my favorite even though she turned out to be a he because of his personality. He responds to his name and is super docile, he follows me through the yard and when eating out of our hand he doesn't peck the crap out of us like the others he's very gentle. Everyone keeps telling us to stop wasting our money and just make soup but I wouldn't eat my dog so how do they expect me to eat my sandra? Any advice on his injury or breed would be greatly appreciated. Sandra is 4lb 4oz and 5 mos old, he's been hurt now for just over a month.
