    I have two week-old chicks (BO & Salmon Favorelles) that I noticed limping yesterday morning. I put them in a separate box with lamp and food and all. It looks like there are red bruised looking spots on their "ankle". I suspect that they may have hurt themselves while perching on some small pieces of wood in the brooder. I do not believe it is maraks because they were vaccinated at the hatchery.
    Have any of you encountered this problem and have any advice?
    Thanks

    Here are some pictures of the BO's feet. The Favorelles girl is improving.
