my chick was born yesterday and wont put any weight on his right leg, he is getting around. ive read the forum on slipped tendons and flipped him over and tried to feel foe one, I couldn't. the leg does look bruised and doesnt really bend. any help would be great

are his toes curled he could have splay leg but if its only one leg that doesn't seem to match. can you give pictures that would help a lot too.

is he lethargic and is he only in one corner. Also what feed is he on he might need a type of vitamin called vitamin b for chick or get him a medicate chick crumble. hope you little chick heals up nice.
