    My chick is a week old(incubator) and has recently started limping and is now losing all of her leg movement. anyone know what could be wrong? I have lost 7 chicks already trying to hold on to this one.
    Thanks

    Did the other 7 have the same symptoms? What are you feeding them? What have you already tried? Are you giving them anything in their water like vitamins?

    Well i actually found what was wrong and i believe her foot is broken or swollen. i noticed it today when i was cleaning the bedding. but for the record i have fed them normal chick starter, laced there water with vitamin e and c, and that's as far as anything special goes.
