Chick hours old scooting on butt legs out in front!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 19
It will come out of it on its own more than likely. The only ones I really put in a glass are the ones who can barely get around or can't get around at all.
NPIP & AI CLEAN
Ducks I raise: Snowy calls and Anconas
Chickens I raise: Ohiki, Swedish flower, svart hona, chocolate, mauve, mauve splash, cuckoo, blue, splash and black orps (bantams, ENGLISH), brown/isabel leghorns, and easter eggers. New for 2017 chocolate cuckoo english orpingtons(large fowl) and Buff saddleback pomeranian geese!
And, 1 lonely guinea hen who thinks she's a duck.

X's 2..the ones that are spraddle legged or I have to put booties on, and they tend to ..umm..tip over.  :D    Keeps them upright .. I put a paper towel in there so they don't slip and slide, I use a glass or cup..don't have a shot glass.  ;)   Sounds like the perfect size tough.  :)

Wonderful family, very understanding husband when it comes to chickens, dogs, birds, one big Golden Retriever, and thankful to the Lord for all!

OK I'm trying my best to just let her be. She seems to get around pretty OK like this and she did drink earlier, but I haven't seen either one eat yet, but they are still so young they wouldn't need to yet I guess. I should say that when she hatched I was stunned. I bought the eggs thinking they were a white houdan x white polish and when she came out all black I just loved that she was the opposite of what I expected. I named her Nachthimmel (Mel for short). It's German for night sky. I figured Mel was a good name weather she decides to stay a she or becomes a he. So here's to hoping Mel is ok! Thanks again to everyone for the advice. Funny how neurotic I get over these fluffy little babies.

Oh poor baby - she looks like a little black frog.  The cup method should help her - I remember one person attached  a small bottle cap to the rim of cup, so chick could reach water, or have some food this way.     Have you tried her out on non-skid surface  to see if she can pull legs under her?

Ok so @Cynthia12 Was right!!!!!!!! she's fine walking around being a normal little baby again! Thank you a million times over to everyone who helped me out. This "Paddle Foot" thing almost gave me a heart attack!

 

Here she is all better! Also a Buff Brahma chick joined them!

My new chick is doing the same thing...so pathetic looking! :(  I feel so sad for her!  Any suggestions?  I read some people standing them in a shot glass, but it would seem that the slippery glass might make things worse.  These are classroom chicks, so I'd like to fix it or remove the chick before my 6 year old students see it!  Will it get better?  What should I do?  Of course, it's the white one that all the kids like the best! :(
