    It's like the legs are split open. When she tries to walk she limps like the wieght hurts. She sometimes puts her feet out in front of her head and pulls forward also more this than the other. Do you thgink she will be ok. Thank you for your reply.

    We're going to need more info to help. How old is the bird? What is it eating? Limping is not normal and a sign of a problem. You may want to review the sticky post that helps you to compile info needed so folks can try to help or offer advice.

    Yes just like that. I didn't think no one was going to reply. Praise God she is doing great. She is only 3 days old and her legs are back like normal. She is walking fine. Thanks alot though. It was the only blue cochin that hatch. I was upset the most pretties one man. But she is great. Thanks
