    Well I finally have REAL Ameraucanas thanks to Sebrightmom. I had to drive almost 2 hours to get them, but it was well worth the trip! Heather is really nice and has beautiful chickens [​IMG] I have 4 Blacks and one Blue. One of the black ones got trampled so it is only walking on its right leg. It hops around pretty good, but sometimes it won't eat or drink until I hold it up to the food and water....or if food is sprinkled right in front of him.

    This first pic shows the bad leg...

    awesome.

    I'd probably tape those legs closer together with a bandaid on the gimp chick.

    Quote:You think that would help him walk? He almost acts like it hurts to use it. He just hops on the right leg.
