    This kinda connects to my other thread. My chicken was attacked by mites a few months ago and is not able to walk. It does not seem that she is paralyzed or has a broken leg, because she can stand up and keep her balance. We've barely started to excercise her legs to hopefully help her recover. Do you think there is any hope for her legs to make a recovery? Thanks!

    Can she eat and drink on her own? Has there been steady improvement, even if its slight?

    Do you see any movement in the toes?

    She can eat and drink on her own, and I do see some movement in her toes. Although, I haven't seen any improvement yet.
