In the Brooder
- May 6, 2012
This chick is 1 1/2 weeks old. I am not sure what is wrong with his leg and if there is anything I can do to help. He eats and drinks and is growing fine. He hobbles around. He actually puts pressure on the elbo when he walks so it has started to calus. It looks like it is shaped like an L and instead of walking on the foot he walks on the elbo and the foot is elevated into the air. I just would like some input on what I could do or not do to help him. I haven't put him in the brooder with the older chicks because I don't want him to get trampled on. He is in with 4 other chicks that were born with him and he gets along fine. Any help/advice would be appreciated.
