    Hi..so we got our first 3 gorgeous little chickens last week. They are around 4-5 weeks old. It seems my kids have overloved one of them mistakenly tonight and she isn't putting any weight on one of her legs. I have separated her from the others in a small box and she has her own food and water which she seems to be eating while lying down. What else would you suggest I do tonight before we go to bed please? (Live in Australia) thanks :)
