I have a very nice Mille Fluer D'Uccle pullet I got from a show 4 months ago. A month later she got a big scab on her nose, and guess when I first noticed? At a show!! She had her head between her legs itching it and looked like an ill bird at a large show. Well about 6 weeks ago, she injured her leg. I didn't really do much abut it, as I guessed it would heal or something, well she has been hardly able to move lately. It is like both legs are paralyzed. If you put her on her back, she just stays there, she can't move either leg. So I moved her into a sling in a cage. It is an old fashioned horse saddle girth, the kind with all the little ropes. I put four little ropes behind her legs and the rest in front. It is to support her body weight. If any of you need a bantam sling and don't know what to use, use one of these. They work great. Then I take the metal buckle things and tied them with haystring to the top of the cage, to suspend her just a smidge. But she can't live like this forever, can she? If I need to disbatch her, I will nervously do it myself, which dispite 5 years with chickens, and currently almost 50, I have never done before. I usually have my dad do it, which he puts them on the ground and takes a dull old shovel and crushes their neck. Not very humane IMO. So I was thinking, drench a rag with starter fluid, stick it in a mason jar, then put her head in the mason jar, and wait an hour, just to make sure? I certainly don't want to wait 10 minutes and see her just barely alive. What should I do?
