    [​IMG] Thanks guys! Willow isn't looking good.. pray for her! She isn't eating or drinking, and she can barely sit up on her legs. And she can't walk. =/

    Does will have splayed legs? If so, try a band aid. It helped my chick.

    What are splayed legs? And, I don't think so. She looks a little better, we cleaned most of the blood off, and started eating a little, we're giving her water.. she is now standing- but isn't really moving/walking... At least she isn't falling back anymore? Let's just see tomorrow. If she survives, I'm going to make a blog about her [​IMG]

    I'm so glad to hear your chick is okay. With all the books I've read and posts here I feel like I'm just waiting to lose someone.
