    I have 6 Millie de Fleur d'Uccles that are about 6 weeks old I think? One of the largest boys is having trouble walking/roosting. All the other chicks are roosting except him. He is eating and drinking fine, he will stick both legs out in front of him if you pick him up and he cannot roost on your hand or anything else at all. He is also very weak legged and wobbly when he walks. Once in a while he seems ok, but the rest of the time...not so much. What should I do??? [​IMG]

    make sure they are not on a slippery suface (no paper no glass, medal etc) best is for them to be on pine shavings

    Bumping up...a friend suggested vitamin deficiency so I am going to adress that...I forgot to ask her though, could one have it and the rest be fine? They are all eating the same food...
