Well it's been 24 hours and Fred is still alive. Fred is a gorgeous Splash Wheaten Ameraucana cockerel sired by Geoffrey. Dr. Anderson in west Mesa performed the operation yesterday and I picked him up this morning. I still have him isolated. I put the prescription into the water as directed and got him some high protein game bird finisher and scratch. Tomorrow he'll get scrambled eggs. And, I haven't heard even a peep out of him yet. I shouldn't have any complaints from the neighbors as for crowing. Part of living in an Urban area. Prior to the operation he was VERY active with the girls and I got some gorgeous chicks from him at New Years. One is an Blue feathered Olive Egger with Fred over Mary (my FBCM) I named this OE #29 because it was the last chick out.... I hope it's a pullet as the chick is really pretty.
