    Hello! I have just gotten 11 chicks in the mail today (all 3 day old, mille fleur straight run) and one seems to have wonky feet. I believe its a breeding problem. Is there a way to help the chickie stand up better or be able to walk? I'm hand feeding her at the time. She falls over and cannot get up when sleeping or walking in general. I'm feeding her "Chick starter feed" as it says on the bag from a local feed store. I use newspaper as bedding. Is there a way for her to be able to walk without falling over or will she have to be able to survive with this? Thank you for your help in advance.
