Chicks foot and lower leg pointing nearly backward

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,
We have a black sexlink pullet around 5 or 6 weeks old. We bought at TSC the week after Easter.
A couple days after we got them home(6 were purchased) i noticed the left foot of one was pointing way to the side, almost backward! She doesnt seem to be in pain, and she even puts weight on it and stretches it like the shes trying to wake it up or something. I think it may hinder her from getting on a roost, but she hobbles around to the food and water containers. Sometimes she even almost runs, but it appears it is tiring because if not eating or drinking she is sitting down.
Am i letting her suffer? We have been hoping for the best.
