    I have a 7 week old EE pullit "Gimpy" I believe with one splaid leg, the other leg is fine. It is a very small bird (about the size of my hand)but otherwise healthy and VERY friendly. I was going to cull it but my sister asked me not to but come to find out that she is VERY allergic to it and so is a child in her classroom so she can not adopt it.

    It has been to the vet and will probably always be a very small chook and can not live with other chickens because it gets picked on. I use it now as a sort of brooder for my week old chicks but once the chicks get too big I have to switch them out for new little ones so gimpy does not get stepped on.

    Here is the problem: this chicken deserves a good life and I would like to give it one but havent the time to give it the attention it would need for a happy life. I can really picture this chicken on someones lap while watching TV. I would love for a child to adopt it or a family that could keep it indoors more like a pet. If there is anyone around who thinks they might be interested please let me know. This chicken would be free of course.
