Hi all I was just gifted a Black copper Marans Roo because of his injury. I was told that he was trying to get away from some overly aggressive hens and ended up wedging himself between the ground and the bottom of a wall.He was stuck there for a whole day and when the owner came out to do chores he found the roo stuck. When he took him out he found he could not stand or walk from being stuck for so long. The owner nursed him for a week and the roo was getting better up on his feet a little and still had some weight to him. The owner could not keep the schedule of getting out there 3 times a day so the bird ended up taking a turn for the worst. The owner said he just needed someone to give him the time and care and he would get better. So keeping with my "have to help them all" attitude I took him home. Now I will follow the guidelines for posting because until I get some meat on his bones I don't think it's worth it to try and fix the injury. Feeding him up is what I need help with.... he's so weak looking I really think thats half the problem. 1) He is a black copper marans roo, he is maybe a year old, and weighs diddlie squat. 2) He tends to lay on his side but eats and drinks eagerly. He really wants to drink lots. the water tends to run out his beak but I'm not sure if it's because he can't seem to get his head up more. 3) I'm not 100% but I think about 1 week and a few days. He really looks like he's on his last leg 4)Because the trauma took place so long ago and I didn't see it I don't know. Nothing looks odd or out of place now( just that his bones are sticking out everywhere) 5)As I said above 6)I have been giving him chick starter ( is that ok) and water with electrolytes in it I did manage to get some boiled egg in him too. 7)Normal but a lot less than other birds also a little green in color. 8)As I said in 6 9) I would like to handle this myself if I have to put him down to be far I will but if I can get him back on his feet I will have myself a roo with good lines. 10) I will get pics up asap!! 11) he is in a large wire dog create with an open bottom he has a very thick bed of shavings with heat lamps near him.
