    I was holding the chick and the chick pooped on me and when I reached for a tissue the chick fell on the tile floor. perhaps 3 feet up? there was a thud... the chick layed there for a few seconds and then hopped back up like nothing happened... do you think she's going to be ok? she's acting normal and eating and drinking with the rest... Im just worried about internal injuries... do you think she's going to be ok? I feel terrible. really terrible. I think we need a sit down rule from now on...

    ya she will be fine i think the only reason i could think she just sat there was cause she is shocked...now if she is holdeing out her wing or when she walks she wobbles then i would worry but right now i think she is fine

    Have you ever seen a baby bird jump out of a tree? They bounce. Don't worry.

    I think your chick will be A OK [​IMG] ! Last year I had a BO that jumped down maybe 4 1/2 ft and was perfectly fine. He didnt even freeze. About 1 second after he hit the linoleum he got up and I had to catch him LOL [​IMG]
