    I had a baby chick that was born this weekend that kinda walked clubbed foot I think. That's all that was wrong with it I think. I went out of town the day after it hatched. My mom who takes care of my birds when I leave called me telling me that she had to cut it head off and was crying. She said that there was more on the outside of the chick than on the inside. She said that it was stuck the a liner I have in té brooder. What would have had this happen. She said it was like it went to the bathroom and all the intestines came out.

    My guess would be some kind of genetic issue. Not all of them are meant to survive. Sounds to me like your mom did what she had to do to put it out of its misery. So sorry for your loss [​IMG]
