    i just got a chick a week ago and is now 2 weeks old....it seemed to have a weak leg so i put a towel down so it would be easy to walk on....
    she can walk and jump around but one legs seems to lean and then she just sits down...she looks healthy and eats and drinks...
    the one leg looks like it may be a little swollen...but doesnt seem to be in pain when she walks or i touch it...any suggestions??.......thanks
