    I have a 4 day old Red sexlink leghorn mix that has not been able to stand from birth. It try's to walk around, but ends up bouncing around. The other chicks have been picking on it so I separated it from them. I have put tape shoes on it, and it seems to help a little. It has been eating and drinking. It seems like it just can't get up on its legs. I really really don't want to cull it. So what should I do?
