Chicken not Walking

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This baby is having trouble walking around. Not sure if it's his legs or the red spot on him? If it's his legs should we try to put a splint on him. He's so sweet and don't want to lose him. He's out of our first time incubating. Thanks for any advice.

It looks like the legs.

Do you think using a bandaid would help?

I would put him on chick vitamins in his water, good for the other chicks as well. SaveAChick vitamins are good, and so are Vitamins With Lactobacillus, and Durvet Poultry Vitamins. Try him in a chick chair to help him stand with feet touching the floor. Google chick chair for pictures of some. If his legs are more than1 1/4 inches apart, he may need a bandaid or vert wrap hobble.
