Hi, I was at a bird seed store and found a sick and dying chick who was barely a week old. He ended up there by mistake and they weren't actually caring for it, so I got it home till he gets better. I don't own a chicken farm or anything, but I do have some other birds. I do realise that chickens do not make good indoor pets but I don't have any other choice, no one was willing to take the chick. I've had him for about a month now, but now I'm in a fix. I've homed him in an empty room all to himself where he has food and plenty of space and where I spend plenty of time with him. But today somehow a stray cat found its way in and managed to bite the poor baby. He's been bitten under his wing (not very deep) and on the thigh of the other side. There was bleeding but it has stopped now. I've applied antiseptic, given him chicken safe vitamins and tried giving him sugar water. He's eating well as of now and even drinking water. However he is completely unable to stand. I've kept him wrapped in a cloth on my lap because it is cold too and I fear he'll hurt himself alone in a cage. Needless to say he's pretty quite and not moving much. When he does, he hurts himself, perhaps because he can't move his leg. There's a possibility for internal bleeding or a nerve getting damaged. Can't say much as of now. There's no vets nearby and the only one is closed at this time. It's 11pm right now. I've seen how birds generally get before dying, he doesn't look like he's in that stage yet. I'll take him to the vet the first thing in the morning when the vet opens. Can someone assist me on what other things I can do to make this situation better. I'm really attached to him and love him very much like I'd love a dog or a cat. I can't afford to watch him suffer and die. I also understand that a chicken inside an apartment is not a wise long term decision. But that's something that I'll worry about later, once (if) he survives. Plus he's a broiler chicken, so no one would even keep him at a farm for eggs. I don't want to give him away just so someone can get a meal out of him. Please help me ouy.
