This is Chicken Ninny. Chicken Ninny came to our house because one morning JD was at Tractor Supply and the worker asked him if anyone could save the baby chick that was going to die if left in the baby chick cage. He called me and I agreed to take him. He had the worst case of splayed leg ever and everything I had done in the past for baby chicks did not work. After about three days of holding him to eat and drink every few hours because he couldn't stand and the leg braces weren't working, Chris and I You-Tubed serious baby chick leg issues and found some videos on therapy jars.
This is Ninny's first jar. He spent two days in it and since he pooped in his felt chair, he had to be bathed fairly often and have the cloth changed.
Then he moved to a part time therapy jar that forced him to stand, he would get tired and sit down and we would stand him up again. He only spent a few hours a day in there.
And finally, he was able to stand on his own and poop on the floor on his own! Exciting progress for the little chick!
Chicken Ninny is the term Oliver uses for both chicken nuggets at Chick Fil A and baby chicks; it's a good name so we went with it. The issue with Ninny is that he is so much smaller than the other chicken ninnies outside, so they will bully him, so he has to continue to live in the dining room for now!
He appreciates the quality time with Oliver I'm sure!
