Better focus here, I could not get the phone to focus on the chicken, not the person!

About 23 days difference. Did she just grow fast, or was the safer living & less stress, good plenty real chicken feed the cause? Like her growth was on hold, or do they just transform that quickly?

Cillin is sick. He had a mild case of bumble foot a few months ago which Gloria treated. He's got another one now and it's infected. His pad is terribly swollen.
He's at the vets 6.30pm tomorrow.
It's amjor problem if he's sick. He ran away from Treacle this evening. Yesterday Treacle didn't challenge him. I think Gloria will have to operate and that means Cillin will have to be confined for a while and Treacle will be the boss. When Cillin returns there will be problems. Not at all happy about this.
Cillin has been as good as gold. I managed to get him out of the bamboo. It took a while. He's in with me for the night and has put up with lots of handling and inspections.:love
I know I post a lot of pictures of Treacle but Cillin has a place very deep in my heart.

That first video is a classic. Don't lose it. Chickens do this all day long and you rarely see pictures of it. Okay, it's not usually quite so explosive or liquid but none the less.
Yup, I can guarantee, chickens do that all day. eat & poo eat & poo eat & poo ;)

He will be fine. You are getting him the help he needs. I know the reintegration is going to be difficult and this will not be easy. You will both get through this. I am glad that you have someone to help him. Kudos to you for knowing when he needs help based upon behavior.
Hugs my firend. :hugs:hugs:hugs

That's 23 days total. That is like the final month of growth. Certainly being safe with nutritious food helped her to finish growing. Without knowing how old she was back in December it is hard to say if her growth was stunted or not. One thing is certainly clear, she is thriving now. She just looks so healthy. You have done just an amazing job with her. :clap:clap
