We have an 8 mo. old Silkie Roo with a deformed foot and curved spine who sits close to the ground. We accommodate as things pop up, ramps, lower food and water dispensers and I carry him into the coop when necessary. He has much more energy for free ranging now that I re-homed the one other roo that we had. Has anyone else ever had a roo or chicken like this? What do you think the life expectancy may be with these issues. I was just curious because he'll stay with us as long as he lives anyway.
