Update: A few days after I posted this our Minnie began to withdraw. She died peacefully while being watched over by me and the kids. It was a fast decline. My oldest DD cried and cried . Thanks for everyones support. We have a chick w/a twisted beak. Please do not suggest we cull. My oldest DD was holding her when she was just a week old and she jumped and probably broke her jaw. At day 30 we began bringing her into the house for the day and feeding her mash. She's growing, thriving. We put her in the coop at night and she snuggles right in. During the day, we bring a couple of "sisters" to visit and she cuddles w/them, they preen her, she's like the Queen of Sheba. Minnie goes to bed w/a very full crop...kinda looks like the bubble on a level. She's part of the family. But, I've a few questions.... 1. How do I get more nutrition into her? Will Cottage Cheese increase her protein? What should we give her. She likes the cheese, banana's, roaming in the grass etc. She does get grit. 2. What about winter? Should we keep her in all winter because of the exposed tongue? 3. Other suggestions? 4. Do they make chicken diapers? Thanks for all assistance!
