After relocating we've decided to get chickens again. This time, our children talked us into chicks. They are approximately 5 weeks old (+/-), mostly feathered. Went to bed all chicks were fine. Went to feed in the morning and noticed the others were just walking over one...even perching on her but not pecking her. In caution, we decided to separate her and observe. We noticed she was weak and not wanting to walk. My daughter hand fed/watered the thing until it was able to eat/drink on her own. The chick was also trying to stand and walk although you could see she was weak. Fast forward 4 days and the chicken can't walk or stand at all. Her righ leg seems to just stick out causing the bird to either sit between her legs or on one side only. To get around she flops around. Really sad. My daughter today researched youtube and discovered splayed legs and the rubber band trick. It's only day one and I don't know what else to do, how long to wait, or if/when/how to dispatch the bird. Any information/thoughts are greatly appreciated.
