    We have a buff cochin chick about 4 wks old now they seems to have been injured. Not sure how it happened at all. It is like the one leg is dislocated? Is that possible? It just splays out to the side, but the chick can still stand and sort of walk. She doesn't seem to be in any pain and continues to eat and drink but I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
