    my white rock chick is only 3/4 days old and at first she was pooping out blood then thank god she stopped. But now she limps and does not use one leg at all, her left leg is swelled a little bit, and her right leg is perfectly fine. and surprisingly she walks on her left leg (the swollen leg) please help me i have never had this problem and for the bedding I've used wood shavings. will she be able to walk again? what can I do? please help. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT SHE SPRAINED IT? IF SO WHAT CAN I DO?
