Help. Chick can't stand or use legs well at all.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
A chick that hatched yesterday had been pretty much normal except that it can't use its legs well. It doesn't have spralled legs. They are under the bird but they like stretch forward to around its head. It tries stand and walk but it just moves it's let's up and down. Doesn't really want to eat or drink much either. I really want to save him.

Pending replies from the experts, I'd suggest vitamin supplements or electrolytes in their water.

Sorry, i live in Kenya, so i cannot advise, but adding honey to water, or gatorade will do the trick for now.
