Ok I have 3 chickies that had unstable footin the first couple of weeks of life i guess an know there feet are very far apart an it makes it hard for them to walk an fly up to roost an they sit down a lot. So how do I fix that or can it ? An what is the term for this condition ? Any coments thanks

    Splayed legs maybe? There will be a link at the bottom of my post. It is a website with a lot of information and pictures of leg/foot problems. The problems are easier to fix when the chicks are newly hatched but you may be able to help them. Good luck. [​IMG]
