Well Speedy hatched at the beginning of the week with 2 extra legs. She is a Silver Spangled Hamburg Chick, first one I've had with 4 legs....... Any how, she has been doing great except that her extra legs kept catching on things. They also began to shrivel up. Well i noticed she had a bad case of pasty butt, and when I removed it and some butt fuzzy........... she had 2 vents........... that were functioning. What's better than a 4 legged chicken, but a 4 legged chicken who can poop double amounts..... Well since the legs were shriveling up and catching on things and now the pasty butt problem because of the legs drooping over one vent, I decided the best thing for her would be to do an amputation. I went up high with a rubberband and tied it off. Then i snipped the legs right underneath. Very little blood but it did have some blood flow going to the legs, although it was clearly shutting down. I was going to just let her be, but this hopefully will make her life a little easier, as i don't know how long she will live. She is a very active and spunky chick as of now.
