It's a special needs chick-
one eyed and cross billed but holding it's own,
with a little help maybe.
You can see how wet it is due to the slurry I make
out of it's crumbles so it can scoop them up in
his crossed beak. I also believe it can't see
well, if at all. It constantly misses it's bowl
so I have to aim at where it pecks unless I
can get it to sit still rather than twirl around in circles.
I don't know why its chest has a large lump.
Is this normal for a cornish cross?
Is it just more noticeable since he is wet?
He heard me play the video and started cheeping with it!
You can see how he eats- this has been the best attempt.
He bends, pecks/scoops and then lifts his head to swallow.
Again, this was a first, I normally have to follow his
head and figure out where he is going to peck.
Often it is this, pecking down but at nothing.
I wanted to sneak him into work so I can feed it during the day
but now that I have moved departments, I have a cubicle
which would be very disruptive to those around me.
He made it ok today.
Maybe he has me fooled into babying him!
