We've got a real jerk for a neighbor, and yesterday our rooster was crossing the road, was nearly across on the side of the road, and the neighbor was flying up the road in her car and ran over Checkers (the rooster). The really sick thing about it was that our other neighbor was watching the whole thing and said she saw Checkers and didn't even try to avoid him. She didn't bother to stop to tell anyone what had happened and on her way back through she was flying again, and looking for the chicken. I'm fit to be tied over it, she could ahve at least went around him or stopped to tell somebody what had happened. Checkers might have had a stroke of luck though, his foot is the only thing that got hurt. It's terribly swollen, his spur on that foot is split, but we're pretty sure his leg isn't broken, just a crushed foot. We can't afford a veternarian visit, god knows we would take him if we could afford it, but other than applying some anti-bacterial ointment on the foot and keeping him in a cage for a little while, is there anything we can do for him? He seems perfectly happy and healthy otherwise, he can't put weight on the foot and the swelling is pretty signifigant, but no signs of infection so far adn he's eating and crowing like a champ. Any advice? -Jesnbec I posted this already but int he wrong forum... We splinted the leg yesterday fearing the worse, but so far his injuries are limited to just the one foot. Appetite is great, and he's still crowing and wants out of the cage something feirce lol.
