chicken with lump
(saint augustine, FL , USA)
Hello my name is victoria and I am 12 years old... When I grow I want to be a vet. I live on a farm and about a year ago a raccoon attackied my 2 baby black leghorn chicks... the rooster died protecting the hen, but the hen had both her leg bones shoved through her sides. Now she is a beautiful slick black hen. She walks like a penguine!
She lives with rabbits and thinks she is one (she even sleeps during the and wakes at night). My rabbits (8 of them, but for are 4 week old babies and the males are in separate cages) live on a closed in porch and run freelyon the floor. The chicken mothers the babies just like the rabbits... the problem is, that she ahs a HUGE bump on the side of her neck...
I love her very much but can't affford the vet cost because I just got my male fixed after the babies. Please tell me what to do... I have raised her from an egg, saved her life and given her a wonderful family... I love her lots please help me!
She is 1 year old (my dad said she shouldn't have lived past 4 month after the accident), a female, a sweet heart... I have Isolated her and kept her warm at night and away from the bunnies and rabbits... Tell me what I should do... I look up to you veterinarians so please don't tell me to put her down! How much would a check up be? I live in st. augustine FL The closest vet is the st. johns
HELP ME PLEASE!!!
