What causes an incubated hatched chick to have a stiff leg.

post #1 of 2

I get two to three chicks out of each batch that will have a stiff leg and they cannot stand? Does anyone know what is causing this and what I can do to prevent it.

Hi Judy, welcome to BYC

Are these eggs from your own hens? If so, what are they fed? Are the chicks affected from the time that they hatch? 2or 3 out of how many in a batch? Do you have any pictures of an affected chick?

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?
