    Hi everyone I am new to keeping chucks wanted to for years but was not allowed as I have 5 cats, 3 free range rabbits & a pony. Came home one day to find 3 chickens in a box on my doorstep, they were destined for the battery farm but were missed off the lorry. I think they were about 8 weeks old & I have had them for 3 weeks, they are not in the best of health Margery had sore eyes which has cleared up but one is still a bit glazed looking, Mable walks with a limp and treads on her own feet and poor Maude has gone down hill she keeps falling over & can't stand she has had vitamin injections at the vets & we now have her on drops. I think it might be vit B deficiency but vet thinks vit D deficiency. Can anyone give me any advice on what I should be doing for her and if there is any hope. Thank you
