I just bought 14 silkies and after I got home I was looking at the chicks and one of the babies is having a hard time standing on one of its feet. It can put weight on it but seems to be having a hard time doing it. If it stands it will try to put weight on it and the leg slowly splays out. Wondering if there is anything I should do or just watch it. I did realize when I got them home that the store I bought them from didn't put any bedding in the bottom of the box so the poor babies were slidding all around inside the box on the way home. I checked over the foot and leg and nothing seems to be broken. Do you think I should seperate this chick into its own pen to give it a break from being pushed and bumped by the others. I did nitice when she stands she is turning its foot inward to try to balance. Thanks for any help.
