Can you please change to lower case letters. Thanks...

Can you tell if the chick has a problem with the leg or if it just seems weak ?

Separate the chick from the others so that it won't get trampled if it falls and can't get up.

It could be a neurological disorder caused by a vitamin deficiency or trauma, a congenital defect or Mareks disease.

Get some Poly-vi-sol liquid baby vitamins. Give the chick 1 drop twice a day for 3 days, cut that in half the next 3 days, then in half again the next 3 days. If it is vitamin deficiency the chick should be OK.
