    I just wanted to give an update on this:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=140535

    I gave him animal cracker paste and now he opens his eyes, today he is standing but he hasn't been able to feed himself. i threw some corn to him this morning but its like he couldn't figure out how to eat. He does like he is trying to peck the food but his mouth doesn't get there. This is the strangest thing I ever seen. It looks like he had a stroke because one leg couldn't support him before and even now he doesn't know how to eat. Anyone who has seen anything like this. I don't know what to do next except feed him and observe him. Thank you everyone, you are Vets, you just don't know it.

    Best of luck with him. I know he feels loved. I hope he gets better and better with time.
