Millet’s Wheelchair & Medical Fund!
This very special boy is Millet, an old English game bantam cockerel. He’s my mom’s chicken and she loves him a ton! He loves her back and used to sit on the porch and crow until she came out to hold him. He’d follow her around, find special treats, and demand to be cuddled and held by his momma.
Over a month ago, though, little Millet had to come inside when he became very wobbly and ill. We were terrified he had Marek’s disease- and while that isn’t 100% ruled out -we’re pretty sure it’s actually a nutritional deficiency.
We’ve been working with our vet to get him healthy and back on his feet, and while he’s gaining strength he’s been laying down for so long that he’s not really able to walk anymore.
I’ve created a sling and been doing exercises to help him learn to walk again, but it’s going to take more than that. I’m wanting to get him a wheelchair from an Australian company to aid in his recovery.
The wheelchair itself plus shipping isn’t too bad, but going to the vet has been financially exhausting and we could use some help! If you have some spare change and feel like dropping it in my paypal (email@example.com) or my cash app ($RexandQuail) that would be super in helping this special little dude get out and be a chicken again!
If not, that’s chill too! Sharing is also a big help ❤️

This is Friend. He is a sizzle (silkie frizzle) that belongs to my neighbor, and we have no idea why his colors are like this. I’ll be honest, I did not know silkies came in wild-type coloration, but here we are.
Update: It has been brought to my attention he’s likely a partridge color morph (which I actually remember thinking at the time of purchase, information which was totally eclipsed by CUTE CUTE CUTE).
