Just wanted to let everyone know that my little cuckoo maran is going great! She's chirping, eating, drinking and running around with all her little chickmates. Her vent looks fine, altho she's lost her bottom fuzz, so I think she's a little embarassed! She's smaller than the other chicks, but I think that was from not eating for two day. She's sure making up for lost time now! Thank you to everyone for their suggestions and support. It sure helped this chicken mom! What a wonderful website this is!
