    One of my baby chicks born about 8 hours ago, legs (both) are spread apart and he can't stand or walk. He is in perfect condition otherwise. Is there anything I can do? He rolls over on his back.

    Do a search for splay leg or splayed leg. There are threads here that cover it. I wish I had all the right info for you.

    Good Luck and God Bless!
