Any ideas? The feed store had no idea and I would like to know if possible.
what a cutie - but what is wrong with her legs?
sorry I cant help as to what kind she is- other than CUTE LOL
i say what is up with the legs
Cute baby! I had to put hobbles on one my little banty babies, her leg stuck straight out to the right. I left the hobbles on for 4 nights and she's been great ever since.
Quote:She...Quincy..... was diagnosed with perosis...her leg sticks straight out to the side. She might have to have it amputated when she is older. I rescued her from the feed store last week. The other chicks were tormenting her and she wouldn't have lived through the night. She is 13 days old now, eating and drinking on her own and showing off all the time how she can stand. Yep, I'm a proud Momma
Quote:That is great! I took hers off last night to change it and her leg still sticks out to the side I have a vet in Portland who specializes in chickens and has amputated legs before in this condition. It's an option for when she's older if we do not see improvement. At least she can get around and be a chick
I know I posted this in another similar thread, but.....she looks a lot like my mystery bantys! I've had suggestions that mine might be Barred Rock or Dominiques, but then they also kinda look like Japanese Bantams, too, so I'm curious to see more breed guesses.
Quote:I know, Barred Rock and Japanese were my two guesses based on pics I've found online but I don't know. I guess it really doesn't matter, it would just be nice to know what she is.
She looks like a blue cochin to me. Why would she need a spraddled leg amputated?
It looks bearded and muffed to me, are the legs feathered?
