    Thanks shortstaque [​IMG] She still wasn't eating on her own and she was 5 days old. She was growing weaker and I kept thinking this is the morning she will be gone. I have no idea how she lasted as long as she did. My little one was like yours and didn't grow at all. It was my first time culling and I was so upset I made myself a very strong drink after [​IMG] But I feel a lot better knowing she is not suffering anymore. The other chick that has splayed legs is doing a lot better and is walking without the band aids now. The leg still goes out a bit to the side but she/he can walk on her/his own [​IMG] Thank you so much for the support throughout this [​IMG] It's been a long week! I'm just glad the other chicks are thriving.
