    My little chick was born with a disfigured leg, she was doing well she's about two months old now eating fine and drinking. In the last two days she is stopped using leg and now it is folding backwards. Any suggestions other than putting her down

    I'm sorry to hear that.

    While it could just be a deformity, it could also be a neurological issue. Did she hatch with it?
