Well, early last week I wrote a post about a 3 day old chick that I discovered was blind asking for help. I got one response of a women who said to cull it and that she had had a similar experience, but her chick a serve mutation to its head. This chick does not. I could not. Yes I love animals, but I thought would I kill a blind cat or a 3 legged dog. I decided I would not and that she would decide if she would want to live or not. I would not let her lay there and starve or suffer, but if she showed the will I was not going to stop it. Boy oh boy does she show the will. Anyway, if anyone is interested "Helen" is now 11 days old and thriving along with all of the other chicks. I put their food in a cake pan and made a cardboard ramp to it, yes their pen is ADA accesible, and bought a large (5x10) wooden platter about an inch deep for water. This way is is easy for Helen to find. She now knows her way around. I know she will not be able to free range during the day with the rest, but so far they accept her and she pushes them right out of her way. Of course we are assuming she is a hen. Either way even if we have to separate her out we are keeping her and she happily eats meal worm treats while perched on our fingers. I have watched her for hours and animals really are amazing. Other than giving her a treat now and then, which we do with the others as well, and modifying the eating situation, we have not done anything special for her. Okay, maybe we talk to her and tell her what an amazing chicken she is, but she has figured it outl. Just thought I would share. Thanks.
