    My dad noticed today that Sheila was walking around with Kiki (my broody) but her wing was drooping as if it was broken. My mom left a little bit ago to get some gauze, I looked under Sheila's wing and I saw that it was purplish-bluish and a little bit bendy (that's the best way I can describe it...) . I just went outside to check on her and she was lying on her side! She's sitting on my lap as I type this, cheeping occasionally and falling asleep, but I'm scared to death for her. I tried to get a picture, but the color of her wing isn't showing up. She's about 2 weeks old. Please help, I love her very much and don't want anything to happen to her.

    Maybe her wing is badly bruised, which would explain the color and the way she is laying down. A warm epsom salt bath will help this.

    I will try that, thanks. My mom and I just wrapped her wing in gauze, she seems to be feeling much better. My dad and I will be taking her to the vet on Monday (closed on Sundays, gah why do these things always happen on the weekends? [​IMG]).
