About day 2 of our first meat bird project, a friend of dd came to the house to see the cute little chicks and dropped one. Ugh! It acted like it was hurt (leg) but I couldn't detect a break or any swelling. I figured I would let it be a few days and see if it got better. Well, It seemed like it was getting better. It was walking with a slight limp, but that has progressed. It now has its leg spralled out to the side. Often it puts its knee down. The leg is twisted and he really can't get around very well. He doesn't seem to be in pain or fuss when I touch the leg or move it around. I tried to splint it, that didn't work. Do I have to cull this bird that will be butchered in about 4 weeks? I know he is going to be growing fast and won't be able to walk at all. It just seems a waste to kill this bird. I am so mad about that girl dropping it. Any ideas? I guess writing this has made me realize what i have to do. Nuts!
