    Gave Indian kroiler chicken eggs to Ugandan chicken to hatch, one of the chicks has very long legs which cannot support it (its 2 days old now). Can this be rectified?

    I would imagine this chick will either not survive or grow out of it. I don't think there is anything you can do at this point. Make sure the chick doesn't have to travel far for food and water.

    Good luck with this baby. And welcome aboard BYC!

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]



    You might want to thing about getting some turkey grow with 20% + protean as this will help in the growth process [​IMG]

    Maybe if you posted a picture - we could come up with better suggestions.
