Well, Doctor Amy, your padded bowl looked very comfortable
and reminds me of a padded basket that I had years ago
when a cockerel went down with botulism and I spent eight
weeks having to firmly hold and hand feed him before he
Your video shows me that more treatment sessions will be
needed as predicted. The first time I used what I call the
"night taping method" I had a two week old peachick that I
named Firestone for the bad defect that this tire brand
had that year. She had been treated for some minor
problems and was cured of those when a tibia twisted
possibly from the irritation of the devices that had
cured her other problems. Each night I taped her at
bedtime and then removed tape in morning. A total of
five nights with NO more treatment. Firestone is now an
old peahen with perfect feet and legs. Since then this
method has been used on various species of poultry.
But there was a bantam cockerel that was brought to me
and left here. First I had to repair a displaced
Achilles tendon which took a very long hard week. After
that his right tibia twisted severly and I spent a whole
miserable month using an experimental device to put
pressure on just the bad leg each night. The cure was
complete but he grew up to flog my ankles every time
I go into his pen--NO good deed goes unpunished
