    I think I'm going to try size one Nike high tops for Arlo's horribly spraddled legs. He'd still be able to move his feeties & it might help him. I'm going to Salem on Wed so I'll get them then. I once read aout a goose born withouut feet who learned to walk in baby shoes. I've been helping my little boy walk by holding one of his feet for him. He seemed surprised when he didn't fall on his face.

    no, but I thought he was too old for that. He's 9 weeks.

    Ive made a real sissy out of this rooster!![​IMG] He's a REAL Mommy's Boy!! (i'm thrilled) loves to be held & cuddles so sweetly. makes the cutest little chirpies. I'll get pictures tomorrow in Salem.

    [​IMG] Did not know his age, sorry [​IMG]

    Maybe a hobble would help him - keep his legs together [​IMG]

    Picture would be great.


    I do not think there is much wrong with spoiling them as long as they behave. My Roo Marilyn is very spoiled - he still loves to be hugged in the morning and dances for me [​IMG]

    I get pictures tomorrow but somebody with a scanner will have to pm me with their address so I can send them. I dont know how to put pics online.
