I have a roo that is approx.10 months old. He is a Jersey Giant, so of course he is big. About 2-3 weeks ago I noticed him limping a little, and at first just watched him, but it continued and seemed to worsen some. I finally took him to see the chicken vet who told me he had what was called perosis or slipped tendon in his left foot. It is like carpal tunnel in humans and is from a B viatmin deficiency. I was asked if I had changed his feed, and I had. While I was sick, I sent my husband to get more feed and he got it from a different feed store than I usually use. The vet said I should switch back to the original feed and supplement him with B-complex, which I have. The day after the visit to the vet, Lurch was having even more trouble walking and I thought it was from the exam and moving his foot the day before. He sits on his knees and pecks a lot, but tries not to walk if possible. THEN.... Sunday night when I came home the dogs had gotten in the chicken lot, and thankfully didn't kill anyone, but Lurch couldn't get away very fast and has either bruising or abrasions all down his back. I brought him in and kept him in the house, but Monday morning he seemed worse. I scraped a little aspirin on an apple and he really liked that. He became more alert after the aspirin took effect, and ate eggs with B-complex like a trooper. I have been doing this for three days, and this morning I had to give him a bath because he had poo all over his bottom. At most he sits up, but always on his hiney, i've watched and now he can't even stand at all on his feet. He has been reduced to nothing more than a big blue blob. He seems pretty happy in his clothes basket, as long as he has aspirin on board for the pain. I don't want him to suffer, but I don't want to give up on him either. Can anyone give me any advise? Has anyone ever had this happen? What was the outcome? Does this just take time? Any thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated.
