Im so glad you took matters into your own hands and splinted her leg to make it heal straight. Not sure if the original members on here remember but the same thing happened to one of my first chicks, i was horrified and my father (who used to breed birds) told me to put it out of its suffering, (the chick didnt seem in any pain at all, so i came on here for advice and got brilliant advice on what to do, so i splinted her leg, and just like you rlil baby her leg was very slightly splayed after i had removed the splints but she went on to be good as new and to have her own chicks too. I wish you all the best with your beautiful baby x
She looks perfect Tasha! I'd adopt her in a second if I was allowed a larger bird inside.
I vaguely remember Dawn, did well. I haven't had much luck lately with splinting mine but have to admit the makeup sponge has alot going for it. Will do that next time - although hopefully it won't happen.
Oh Tel that would be so hard to take having to even decide as to whether putting a bird out of misery is the best thing or not. With me when the "vet" told me to put her down, I didn't even have to think about it, my first reaction was NO!!!!
Good to hear that your bird went on to lead a normal life.
Even if you were alowed to have a larger bird inside Karen, you would have to pry her outta my hands with a hot rod of steel lol
