Hi everyone! I've been lurking on these boards for several months now trying to prepare for the arrival of my flock. They came today, six total- one Australorp, one Easter Egger, one Barred Rock, and three bantam Buff Brahmas. My husband received the babies and upon opening their box thought one of the banties was dead. However, we quickly discovered that he is very much alive but is unable to stand up. He keeps one of his legs underneath him and the other out. The leg he keeps underneath him seems to be turned in an odd direction when compared to the other leg. He doesn't seem to like us handling the leg very much so I wonder if he's in pain. Like I said, he can't stand so he can't walk. He is able to scoot around but I know this must be exhausting. I'm trying to make sure he stays hydrated and has access to food and water, but I'm not sure what else to do . Is it possible that splinting or hobbling his legs might help? I read that as a treatment for splay-legs, which I don't think is the problem, but I defer to the experience of the others here on these boards. . . I've prepared myself for the possibility that having him put to sleep might end up being the most humane decision (we have a close personal friend who is a verterinarian who specializes in "exotics"). Any thoughts, input, etc. are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
