I have a chick that yesterday I noticed wont stand or walk on its legs. Is there some sort of disorder that can cause this? I am hand feeding it surgar water mixed with some wild bird chick food. That seemed to get it through the night.
Thanks

Hi there, I have a 3 month old chicken that was unable to walk or balance. I have a post just a couple of posts down with the title "my chicken couldn't walk two weeks ago now she can...". The info in this post might help you, sounds very similar to what I and another BYC member experienced. Good luck!

Did you treat it for splay leg? That really doestn seem to be the problem since it was fine two days ago up and running even.

No I didn't treat her for splay leg, I'm not sure what that is. My chicken was walking then one day not. It seemed to be a vitamin deficiency maybe or a bacteria. I'm have no idea what your chicken has but I know what worked for mine with what seems to be similar symptoms.
