I am a new member however I have used advice from the Backyard Chicken people since we bought a farm that came with animals 2&1/2 years ago. I need any help I can get from anyone who has had this experience. We had chicks hatch naturally on our farm last Friday. One was born with 4 legs. It lived with mama and other chicks for 2 days and then the mother rejected it and started attacking it. I have it secluded now and it is just the sweetest. It is eating and drinking. The two working legs were splayed so we have them taped up now. Has anyone ever had this experience? I need advice please. We named her Gambe which means "legs" in Italian. This picture was taken when he/she was one day old. One other thing - sorry to be gross - but it poops out of side by the back leg that is curled up. Trying to keep that area clean. Thank you!
