    Its 2days old now and it can't stand, its definately not splayed legs. We help him eat and drink so he should be fine. All the others can stand and run etc. If you need pictures or a video let me know I can provide. THANKS!

    I would try this in the emergency/illness/injury section and maybe someone can help. [​IMG] Good luck with the little guy!

    What type of material do you have him standing on? Sometimes if they are weak i place them on towels. I never use newspaper as it is too slippery for the young ones. Ruth

    Unfortunately if the chick can't eat and drink on its own you can't do it forever. If no improvement is made then you may need to make a decision you don't want to make.
