    Hi, I have done tons of research and cannot find a pic or answer.
    Had a chick hatch with what appears to be a stiff leg..out to the side only a little but appears stiff at the hip.
    I am going to try to get a pic..............with a broody so not easy................
    It can walk, .the knee does not appear to bend.............more like it hops................
    Thanks in advance.....................

    Here is a sight you may have already seen, but it is good for identifying leg and foot problems. Vitamins are always a good thing to try in case it is a deficiency. PolyVisol (no iron) baby vitamins 1or 2 drops a day, or chick vitamins in the water are good to give.
