    My 4 week old baby chick cannot stand she tries to stand on her one good leg. The bag won't even move there's no movement at all. When she moves she chirps alot almost like she was in pain. She eats and drinks but she cannot move on her own and when she tries that leg won't move.

    Hi @Valsmom32 :frow Welcome To BYC
    I'm sorry to hear about your chick.

    Can you post some photos of your chick and her leg?
    How long has the leg been like this?
    Have you noticed any swelling, redness or injury?
    Where are you located in the world (state/country)?

    Hopefully with more information and photos we can give you some suggestions.
