Did surgery today on a six week old chick that ended up on the wrong end of a buff orpington's beak. Basically, she got scalped - no skin left on her head.
My better sense told me to end her misery. We took a vote with the kids and the chick has a 24 hour period to come out of shock before I off her.
Miracles can happen. Have a little read about Mike, the headless chicken.
More to follow, including some very graphic pictures.
Pax Domini Sit Semper Vobiscum,
Mike, Oscar, Hotel.....out.
