    I just wanted to say a quick thanks to those of you on here who helped me out when I first started to realize she had an issue. Unfortunately another bird decided that she had lived long enough (14 weeks) and my husband found her dead with broken neck. She had become the favorite of both of us, so it was very hard to deal with because she was truly a fighter and had a strong will to live even with her deformity, she never took any crap from anyone, well I guess someone had enough (likely a rooster that has been being mean lately).

    Thankyou, I hope so too you always get attached to the "different" ones. Felix the crossbeaked white silkie gets baths and will often sit on my bed (in a diaper) while I read and he falls asleep its so cutee.
