Bo legged chicken?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can anybody tell me anything about this? I've just noticed my Rhode island red chick seems to be pigeon toed. She seems like she's not in any pain but I'm worried about how it will effect her as she ages. Any insight? [IMG]

This looks like a growth deformity. What kind of food has she been raised on?

Medicated chick starter. She's the only one out of 24 chicks and 2 ducks to be doing this.

Odd. Usually this is seen in broilers that grow too fast. Unfortunately, this will cripple her if not corrected and the only way to correct it at this point is specialized surgery. It's up tp you if you see how she does or cull her now before she starts to suffer.
