    Today I went in and one my chicks is limping ! It is still some what active, looks healthy. I saw it limp its way over to the food and waterer so it is still eating and drinking often, but it does spend most of its time sitting. What can I do too help it survive ?

    Most likely 'slipped tendon' and it can be fixed. Look it up there are solutions out there.
