    I have 12 Cornish Cross chicks that are 22 days old. All of them are doing remarkably well except for one that has become crippled. It doesn't really have any use of it's legs at all and just kind of flops around... My question to you guys is what would you do with it? For the moment I have it in a smaller box within my brooder where it can access food and water without being trampled or picked on but I have no idea what to do with it. Should I wait and see what happens or cull it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
