She didn't absorb the yolk properly when she was born and was really weak. She also has spraddled legs and curled toes. Was a bit of a lost cause when she hatched but we helped her and she is a real fighter. She still has the open wound but it's healing nicely I'm still worried about infection but we shall see.

The other chicks are little bantams I have no idea what she is

Thought I would update you on my poorly chickie. She is doing marvelous. Ive removed her plasters today and her legs are a still wobbly but better than they were. I might replaster her legs later but definatly not her feet. Shes growing her new feathers in nicely and is a real sweetie.

She is eating a drinking and never shuts up. When I knock on the glass she is so nosey and comes to look. Shes still scabby on her tummy and totally bald on her bum but I dont mention it incase shes self conscious

A real big up yours to all the people who told me to cull the day she was born.

Well I hope shes a she,

this was just after I took off the plasters. Shes still wide legged but running everywhere.

I would have done the same thing. I can never kill injured/sick babies if they have a will to live. I even raise and breed rats for my snake but only feed it the mean ones and recently I had a baby born and the mother died because of labor complications so I had to feed the baby rat with a medicine dropper and keep it on a heat pad. It didn't make it but at least I tried.
