I have a 7 week silkie (among 20 full sized chicks) and she holds her own just fine. However, I noticed last night she seemed to be limping a bit and today it looks like she's walking more on that whole section of her leg from her feet up to her first joint instead of on her feet. Is this normal? If not is there anything I can do? I picked her up and sort of cleaned the stuff gathered in her leg feathers and maybe that made a difference. I know she can get up off her haunches to reach the food dish if she needs to. So, am I just being a nervous mom? I've never raised anything this small. BTW, I keep saying "she" but I have no clue of the sex. Will look through other posts to find out when I can tell.
