Good morning, I have a flock of X-Rocks and 1 of them has not been walking for a few days. They are about 1 month old. I have separated her from the rest so she can eat and drink, and she is. I know these breeds have leg problems, is there anything I can do to help her or is she approaching the end? Your advise is appreciated.

Eric

Your right leg problems do accure, it's the nature of the beast when it comes to CCX. If it is 4 wks old it's big enough to get a nice little game hen dressed for the table. Unfortunately you can't realy fix the leg problem now it just won't take and these meat birds don't handle stress well at all. Processing it I think is the best option at this time. Don't dawdle on this cause the bird will only go down hill from here, sometimes you have to do the right thing and it was destine for the freezer anyway.
