I have a 2 day old pheasant chick. This little bugger was havin too much trouble hatchin (so i think) and i intervened, anywho, it's right leg doesn't work properly. It's allmost like i interfered and cut him out before he was ready to hatch. When it tires to walk it's leg jist goes in sort of a circle and overlaps it's wing. needless to say, it can't walk very well and i have yet to see it drink or take food. I know that pheasant chicks are supposed to be able to not eat or drink for 3 days because they still have yolk in them(its belly is very rounded). Has anyone ever experienced this with any other chicks and did the leg ever git "right" ? Or is this little bugger doomed ? I have tried puttin it's little beak into the water and food but it doesn't seem to work. It will peck at the shavings in the brooder so other than it's natural curiosty for things it might eat. Should i jist cull it now or does anyone have any tips ? I figgered out how to git it to eat. I put it into a small box with food spread on the floor and it began eating immediately. Here you can see the bad leg. Is this spraddle leg Brenda ? I noticed that it's left leg aint in all that good o' shape either.
