    I have a 3 month old Crevecoeur chick and yesterday was walking fine, then I look today and with one of her legs she's not using her foot and toes to walk, she's walking on her shank and kinda jumping to walk.

    I looked at her foot to see if she has and cuts or abrasions on her foot but I don't see any and it's not really swollen either. She's eating fine and alert. She is the smallest chick in the flock the rest are bigger breeds I wonder if she may have jammed her foot from a bigger chick chasing her? I separated her from the rest. I hope it's not mereks cause my mom loves her.
