In the Brooder
- Sep 24, 2013
So I made a previous post about my silkie being spooked by a fox and she is lame in both legs. Here is what's going on now. She is breathing with her mouth open. Now she is not making any noises whatsoever and I even held her beak shut and put my ear to her face...no noises or struggling to breath at all. I swabbed her throat and it was clean as a whistle. She is inside with me always on clean towels. Her poo is perfectly normal most of the time. I do have to handfeed her food because she doesn't care for it much but its good for her so she just has to deal. She is getting plenty of fluids and she gets poly vi sol vitamin every day. I was exercising her legs today and got very slight movement from her toes. Not sure what her injury is as she has no visible signs of injury except her legs don't work. Her breathing with her beak open has me puzzled because she shows no sign of anything to cause her to do this and the swab was clean. Any suggestions?
