1 month old chick has rubber legs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My little chick was fine 2 mornings ago. I went to fmmcheck them that night and her legs were not working. The feet are folding under. She looks good other than that. No sign of swelling or injury. I have no idea how to help her. I bought her online so I really don't want to loose her. She is a whiting true blue.

A little more information will be helpful.

How old is she?

Can you post some photos of the position of legs/how she is laying?

Any other symptoms such as lethargy, not eating/drinking?

Was she vaccinated for Marek's?

What does her poop look like?

 

Some leg issues can be caused by Vitamin B deficiency, especially Vitamin B2(riboflavin), you can add some poultry vitamins to her water or you can use a human B-Complex tablet which has all the Bvitamins (make sure there is no iron in the ingredient list).
