    I gave Jane Childrens ibuprofen. It seemed to help some. She barley walked for what seemed like forever. . I was almost to the point of putting her down. All of the sudden one day. . she just got up and walked.
    :confused:

    Huh. Well, that gives me some hope, because I was thinking of putting Ally out of her misery soon if she didn't show any signs of improvement. Maybe she'll have the same kind of recovery.

    then move it up 4 days and surprise her!!!

    I hope so!
    I did limit her mobility, her and Duck are back to living separate from the rest. I don't think she can handle being with the flock and getting trampled.

    I had Ally penned for about a week, but she was miserable and wouldn't quit screaming so I let her back out. :hmm

    Ya. Sometimes that's harder on them than just leaving them be.
    Hey. .check her toenails. One thing I did right before she started walking again was cut her nails shorter. Made me wonder if that was it all along.
