    Hi! My name is Andrea, and I am entirely new to this! I only started because while helping my mom feed my grandfathers chickens/roosters, my boyfriend and I found an abandoned chick. It was abandoned because one of the legs does not work. So my boyfriend and I kind of took over, but we have no experience raising chicks whatsoever haha! So any and ALL advice is appreciated! To add on its leg is warm to the touch and appears to have blood circulation, it just doesn't work, it does not express pain when we touch it either its just kind of there.

    What do you mean "it doesn't work"? Got a picture? Is it eating? Drinking? Pooping?
    Keep it warm.
