**Update 2/21** Dad checked on the birds this morning and found Lionel laying down and not moving. He passed away during the night. He was a favorite and one of the first chickens I had, very friendly rooster. I am sad that I never kept his offspring hoping that I would have him another year. Pidgin is doing well. According to my Dad this happened a week ago on Sunday. I came home this weekend from college and just found out and saw for myself. Lionel my brahma rooster has swollen feet and melted toe nails.... his spurs are black.... the few times he walks he picks his legs up sooo high. Him and Pidgin light brahma hen, had' feathered feet. I think it both saved them but made it worse. I don't know what to do for them. Pidgin has skin peeling off her feet. the skin on both is still... alive looking with some scales gone.... the back of the hocks? are exposed bone with scab..... Pidgin seems to be doing 'best' It sounds like dad has been putting neosporin on them all week. Also they don't have tails..... their tails burned off..... all the feathers around their butt are burned off..... and the rest of the feathers are smoke and heat damaged. This is beyond my understanding of what to do. Lionel was standing on the snow this morning... which i am sure hurt but keeps the swelling down.... I have placed Lionel and Pidgin in my little chicken tractor with water and scratch and clean straw, and no heat lamp ( i figured they are going to have PTSD every time they see a lamp...). If there is medications i can get them today please let me know. I know that anything with 'cane' in it can kill them... and i am glad and lucky my dad only was putting neosporin on.... I also have a Cayuga Drake that i put in with them that is sharing food and water... the other ducks have picked on it bad. he has no feathers on his neck and after picking him up i realized they been keeping him from food and water. I figured all 3 need peace and quiet. I will not take pictures because it is that bad. I do not wish this on anyone. I have another chicken that is worse but tonight its suffering will be ended. I set it next to food and water and it was eating and drinking. its feet are melted together legs are black and dead looking, peeling, and it walks on the stubs with the remainder of its wings, the primary's burned off too. I know some chickens live fine with a foot missing or toes.. but the extent of this would pretty much have it walking on 'drumsticks'. i am surprised it has lived as long as it has and the other birds don't pick on it, probally because it smells burnt. For the other 2 birds i do not know what to do or if i should try to bandage.... i am pretty sure Lionel's spurs are 'dead' but i cannot cause more pain by removing them.... i don't want to add to the shock. i assume they will fall off. I have no clue what to do. they are still eating and drinking, Lionel not as much but he is trying. Because these 2 are still moving and trying to live I won't give up. they are the few original birds i have left. Lionel is over 4 years old and Pidgin is 3 years old. Please Help. Update 2/20 ***Warning Graphic** I had to return to college today and I showed Dad the amount of the Protein supplement to add to the top of the feed and that he needs to try and spray the Veterycin on as much at possible. I decided that the wounds have healed enough to take photos to document. Lionel is doing worse today but maybe its because he is not with the rest of the flock having to act tuff. I figure that with having Pidgin in there with him it will encourage the will to live. I asked Dad if he could try to take a warm wet cloth to Lionel's butt to try and clean it some. He is not eating much but is still drinking. Pidgin came up and demanded to be let out and then started eating some of the protein stuff. This is what they survived. Lionel Lionel's legs Front. Lionel's back of legs Lionel has a bad case of runs.... i think.... i really hope its not his organs shutting down. I don't want to mess with that area because it is healing. I miss his tail. Believe it or not but this has healed a lot since saturday morning.... Pidgin is faring better and is still lively and boss. She is healing faster but somehow she also didn't get burned as badly... her but is still burned and the bottoms of her feet are peeling. the duck in the background doesn't bother them, he is alone because the other ducks have outted him. So this is quiet time for him, i think his tail has been kicked enough to where his hormones won't harass pidgin. The worst part is both of them had just finished molting.... now they have to start over again.
