    I know its not a chicken but i have this little partride chick that hatched 1-2 days ago, its knee joint has swollen and become red so badly that the chick cannot walk and i don't know whether it has eaten or drank yet, i don't think it will live much loner if it isn't helped.
    Where the swelling is it can't bend at all, so at all times the leg is tucked under it, which forces its good leg to splay out, at the moment it sort of hobbles about abit.
