Blue Orpington Chicks can't walk!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can anyone please help me with this? They're 2 days old, and have something wrong with their legs. Should I cull or will they grow out of it? https://youtu.be/akRV5nW7_DQ

It could be a vitamin B2 riboflavin deficiency. Start chick vitamins containing riboflavin in their water right away. Make sure they are eating a fresh chick starter.

That's for splayed leg though in chickens but I just did it also for my turkey I have done this many times to my baby chicks before. It works everytime for me anyways
