The injured chick is doing better and better. She’s eating and drinking on her own, getting steadier on her feet, and doesn’t show any obvious signs of pain. Yay!
Here’s a short video. Youtube
The feathers on her head belong to her mother. They’ve healed into the wound, and I guess they’ll have to heal their way back out. I do trim them, but as she gets more and more active, it gets harder to do anything of a non-risky nature with scissors.
Over all, she’s doing remarkably well. 😀 (Note I’m calling it her. I really have no idea if it’s a pullet or a cockerel, but I’m hoping pullet.)
