    OMG:( - my Buff orpington - Princess Fiona - hanging by one foot - toegot caught in their patio chair! Foot swollen - she was upside down - face purple and can not walk! Called the vet and rushed her in - thank God - nothing broken - bad sprain - can stand but can not walk yet - going to get worse before it gets better.

    Needless to say - those chairs are gone![​IMG] But what an experience - the rest of my peeps - not a sound! they were all huddled around her - only jones - brown legged rose comb-running back and forth - knew that there was something wrong - got her out - sat with her in my arms -, NOT A SOUND- FROM ANY NONE - 24 other others just sat with us - huddled around and sat by us.

    Vet got her in and xray - just soft tissue truma - 5-7 days - confinement - pain med... and hoepfully she willbe able to walk.

    prayers please! thank you.

    Get Well Soon, what a thing to have happen. I'm glad you posted information so we all can keep our thinking caps on. There will always be something our chicks will do to scare us. Best Wishes.

    That's terrible thank the Lord you found her. It's very sweet that the other's stayed with her. I hope she heels quickly, and is scratching and pecking with the rest soon. Good Luck

    Sounds like something a toddler would do! Hard lesson learned, that's for sure. I'm glad you found her in time and got her to the vet.
