    Four of my chicks hatched yesterday and two of the four chicks fell but one is walking and one is not. The chick seems to be fine and is only using one leg. The chick cannot walk or stand and uses it wings to help it move. The chicks leg looks fine but it kind of looks sprawled but it isnt out that far. I am very worried and would appreciate any help. I have decided to fix it as if it was spraddle leg. Is this ok?
