    One of my 12 wk.-old hatchery-type chicks looks she she has knock knees.
    Is that the problem, or is it another deformity?
    She gets around fine, just wondering and concerned it will cause her problems when she is grown...

    I have a hen like that and if you didn't take the time to inspect her carefully you would never know she had 'em. She gets around and scratches and moves just like any other chicken. Good luck! MW
