    [​IMG] Hi guys [​IMG]. [​IMG] I'm sad. My GoldenLaced Wyandotte baby isn't doing so well. You may remember my little story about her... idk. But here's her situation:
    She keeps falling when she walks, and when she falls she can't get up, and since she's down on the ground, my RIR pecks at her. And it seems Willow's leg problem has gotten worse =/. Because I don't want her to suffer... but I love her so much [​IMG]. I hope she heals soon [​IMG] And I have no idea what's wrong with her either... I just hope she gets better [​IMG]

    How old is she? Did you ever give Corid for coccidia or worm her with Safeguard? Is she thin. Which leg is it?

    Well, she's about hmm, let me figure out. She's for months old, but it's like she spranged it or something?
    But no, she's eating fine, and drinking fine, and no, we havn't this is a new problem for us. But I have a feeling that her whole toenail accidently getting crushed by a door had part of this =/.
    ?But my mom and I are taking her to a bird vet, to see if she knows what's wrong, and what could help. I'll give you updates when we get back

    Praying for youand willow.
    Keep her inside and seperated from the others.
    That could help her heal.

    [​IMG] My BR hen Precious had this same problem, so I put her in a very roomy pen just for her, with my stupid egg eater who quit eating eggs since she was with her BFF. It took her about 2 months to recover. Below is a picture of her leg hurting when she was eating, so she sat in her food bowl. LOL And I think Precious sprained her foot.
