My lovely 5 year old Blue Partridge Brahma cock is gone.
I have been treating him for an infected leg....antibiotics, draining cop[ious amounts of pus.....for two weeks. For the last 3 days he has only come out of the pen and sat outside (trying to maintain his alpha position). I have carried him back to the coop at night.
Today,when carrying him up to the house for re-dressing, he was floppy and quiet. There was copious blood and pus soaking his bandages and the smell was overwhelming.
It was clear that the tendons had snapped in his toes eaten away by the gangrene which was now evident.
It was not fair to let him continue to suffer.....
RIP my lovely Twp....beautiful, mild mannered and charming.
