I recently got a handful of baby chicks and about 10 days after I got them I noticed that one of them was looking wobbly on her feet. She was walking a bit funny and I noticed her toes were bent off to the sides on both feet. Not all the toes, just the long one in the front on both feet. They pointed outward. Sometimes it would walk funny, sometimes it wouldnt. My husband had talked to the people we had gotten them from and they mentioned that the chicks parents were closely related. My question is, how closely related would they need to be for something like this to occur? And if I wanted to reproduce chicks from these hens at a later time, if I had a completely unrelated roo would this be a future concern or should I also just start out with new hens and leave these to being hens that just lay eggs? One of the chicks also never grew. It was very close to the same size it was when I got them at a day old. She ate just fine and drank water too. It didnt seem to have anything else going on with it. Then she died. When I noticed her dead, I promptly removed her from the crate and took all the chicks out and cleaned and disinfected the crate because I wasnt sure exactly what cause this. I hope its not too graphic to say that she was flat as a pancake and didnt appear to have anything else wrong, no injuried no peck marks, nothing. Is there something that may have caused her to not grow? Either on my part or for another reason? I would really like to avoid loosing another chick in the future. Thanks in Advance!
