In the Brooder
- Mar 28, 2016
Hi there. I posted a thread a week or so ago about this little chick we ended up rescuing. No idea of breed or gender (the original owner, who tried to let "nature" take its course with this chick by putting it outside after its two mates died, says female but a kind that "doesn't lay eggs ). I'm starting to wonder about it being a meat bird, or potentially sick. It's starting to feather out after it's growth seemed to be stunted for a bit, and it eats and drinks a lot. It moves around quite a bit, but tends to lay to drink, and sometimes does a funny laying, crawling kind of walk to move short distances. We got a second chick to keep it company andthey get along great and often snuggle up and follow each other around. I've still got this underlying fear tho. Including a few pictures taken today as well as a poop pic. Any ideas on breed and it's overall look of health? Thanks!
