Chicken sling - Solarbats help?


Just a quick check in as we're so busy with building work we didn't even have time to put up Christmas decorations 

I'm hoping that Helen can help me as I need to make a sling for Bluebird.  Her leg muscles are wasting away and I read up that popping them in a sling can help build them up again.  Bless her, she can't stand at all now but is still alert and is eating and drinking.   

Anyway, hope you all have a Happy New Year xx

    Hi Bonnie!  You've probably sorted something out by now, but here is a pic of the old harness.  It's very basic - just a fleece with a hole cut in for her leg.  Yours would be much more stable with two holes I expect!  Let us know what you come up with.HPIM2330-001

    Hi Helen thanks for this. I’ll give it a go. I guess a hole to poop through too
