Leg issues on day old

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This chick had to be helped out of the egg, the egg had some fluid in the air cell during incubation. It was a shipped egg. Any advice? He is walking on his"knuckles"?? And is very spunky. I can't bring myself to cull him. He gets himself to water and food.

Have you looked at any of the splayed leg threads ?

A pic of the chick standing would be helpful to get the full idea of how this little ones legs are ....
