Limping chicks please help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

two of the baby silkies I just hatched a couple days ago have been limping around and not stepping on their right feet and I'm really starting to worry. All the other ones are completely healthy but these ones can hardly walk. What should I do?

I would try some poultry vitamins in their water in case of a vitamin deficiency. Also research slipped tendon and leg bone deformities in chickens. Make sure they don't have splay legs which is fairly easy to fix eith hobbles. Chick chairs can be made to hold them upright in a standing position, and just Google that or look it up on the search box top of this page.
