    I don't really know how to explain it but since hatching 1 of the chicks leg basically points backwards.

    For 2 days I left it as it was getting food water etc and mummy hen was looking after it however after much googling I thought ide try 'fixing' it.

    It doesn't look like splayed leg but I treated it the same way ( i have it in a brooder now) 2 days later still no improvement still sticks out backwards.

    The chick is eating drinking pooping moving in and out of the heat and barely cheaps is that weird?

    Will it have to be amputated? I have googled 1 legged chickens and they seem OK?!

    I've attached a pic any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you x[​IMG]
