I feel sooo bad. I'm such a horrible chicken keeper!!! I have milk crates with straw in them in the coop for them to get used to them to lay in till hubby can get more permanent ones built. I found one of my chickens hanging with her foot stuck in the handle part. Her body was supported on the floor thank goodness. I hadn't been out there since about 8:30am. I don't know how long she was stuck. I got her undone. She tried to take off but I grabbed her to check her out. There's a very small rub place on her scaly part next to the feathers with no evidence of blood. I felt her leg and body, wings everything and everything checks out ok. I held her for a little while and she slept. When I put her down to see if she could walk, she tried but limped on it. As soon as I put her down one of the other chicks started pecking at her. GRRR I have brought her in and put her in a small cage to keep her from moving around too much. She can turn around in it but that's about it. At least till hubby gets home from work. I tried to get her to drink but she wouldn't. I know she's stressed and stuff. Do I need to give her electrolytes in her water and make her drink? Is that necessary at this point. Just watch her for a while? How long should I keep her separate before the others forget about her? Needless to say... THE &(*&%&(@# CRATES ARE HISTORY!!!
